The Wharf

Salmon – Sea Trout –  Brown Trout – Grayling 

The Wharf is one of the oldest CADAC beats and has over the years accounted for a large number of Salmon. Although anglers may fish for Trout and Grayling here it is considered to be a Salmon beat and due to the nature of the banks it is primarily a spinning and bait beat.

This beat is a series of slow deep pools and produces fish on low and high water. Due to the nature of the river here the Wharf is fishable in high water when other beats are rendered unfishable.

The Work Party members have recently completed a great deal of work at the Wharf increasing and improving access to several areas. This beat is often overlooked by members, however for those who do fish it regularly the Wharf continues to reward them.
