Crogen 2

Crogen 2

This is arguably the most popular of the Crogen Beats. This section of water consists of a mixture of slower deep pools, riffles and glides - perfect for all species and anglers. Wading is generally excellent but care should be taken in the areas of deeper water. This Beat is double bank fishing and access is easy and there are numerous parking areas. There are some very large Grayling on this Beat.
