Tactics:
Standard canal tactics apply, as with most canals the fish move around a great deal as there is a lack of features. Look out for anything that offers the fish cover, such as parked boats or where the width of the canal changes. Any inflow pipes can also be a good natural source of food for the fish so targeting these is a good idea.
As with any canal fishing keep the tackle light with small hooks and light hooklinks.


Baits:
Small baits will produce fish whatever the season. Breadflake will pick out the better Roach. Maggots will catch most things with small deadbaits attracting the Pike in Winter


Costs:
Annual 20 Adults, 10 children and concessions
