The Fishing Passport: River Crai (Lower)

Seemingly miles from civilisation, the Crai valley sums up the beauty of mid Wales. It is a wonderful trout stream, and one of the Usk’s most productive tributaries. The fishing has now been extended and split into two 1 mile beats.

The large numbers of juvenile salmon in this river mean that anglers must use barbless hooks only. The flows are topped up in the summer by releases from Crai reservoir and it is easy wading.

The Lower Crai beat is all double bank fishing, adjoining the upper beat at its upstream limit at Ty Gwyn Bridge.
