General description

The canal can be an excellent fishery throughout its length. In the summer, it is used to store water to irrigate farmers fields, so the depth holds up at around 4-6 feet. It is a very weedy water, and always has been, so it is a good idea to take a small weed rake to open up your swim. The fish soon respond and the coloured water proves an advantage. In winter, the levels are lowered for flood defence reasons and it can be quite shallow. The banks here are very comfortable for fishing and it is a very peaceful and quiet part of the canal.
