Beat 24: Wiggaton



About Beat 24: Wiggaton

With just over a mile of LHB, Wiggaton has long provided good brown trout fishing and, at times, good numbers of grayling. There is a good head of trout around the 10” mark, although it has produced monster 2lb-ers in the past. The beat has several deep corner pools and fishy spots, and usually benefits from a good mayfly hatch. Wading is recommended, and the use of a wading staff is advised. 2019 welcomed a cracking brownie of 17” along with a good number of Grayling. This beat has recently benefitted from habitat management on the lower section and some access creation in the mid-section.
