River Weaver Navigation (Sutton Weaver)



Sutton Weaver Swing Bridge, A56

General description

This stretch of the Weaver Navigation starts from where the A56 crosses the Navigation at the Sutton Weaver Swing Bridge between Sutton Weaver and Frodsham up stream for about 720 metres. Fishing on this stretch is under the direct control of PSAC.

The river here is deep and wide with a good head of coarse fish including Carp, Bream, Pike, Eels, as well as mixed silvers

Members of Dee Anglers, Darlech AC,  Liverpool & District Angling Association and Lymm Angling Club are allowed to fish this water through affiliation.

All though it’s deep and wide the method of fishing is similar to that used on canals so The following link to the  Improve Your Canal Fishing videos with Simon Mottram (Motty) .A great set of videos could be useful.
