This is another one of the CADAC main beats and it’s a mixture of slow deep pools, fast broken water, glides and riffles.
As a Salmon fishery it offers the angler the choice of fly, worm and spinning tactics and several Salmon are caught on this beat every year. Trout and Grayling anglers are able to use a variety of tactics on this water due to its varied nature. Access and parking are excellent at this location.
1) Members with the relevant permits and rod licences may fish for Salmon, Sea Trout, Brown Trout and Grayling.
2) Night time fishing for Sea Trout until 3am is allowed on the whole of this beat. Sea Trout fishing at night is strictly ‘fly only’.
3) Standard Club rules apply.
