Shropshire Union Canal
Bridge 107 – Bridge 108 Beeston Stretch
This stretch of the Shropshire Union Canal was once a popular match length. However in recent times the decline in match fishing on canals has left this stretch somewhat under fished. The length holds good shoals of roach and bream as well as plenty of Tench, Perch, Carp and Pike.
Bridge 108 – Bridge 111 Shady Oak
This stretch of the Shropshire Union Canal offers some outstanding sport in beautiful surrounds, nestling in the shadow of Beeston Castle. The Shady Oak length has something of a reputation for holding large shoals of Bream and Roach and will naturally be home to the large Pike that prey on them. This length is also known to hold large Carp as well as the occasional large Eel.
Bridge 111 – Bridge 120 Crows Nest
This lengthy stretch of the Shropshire Union Canal offers some great all round fishing. Good shoals of Roach and Bream are present along with plenty of Perch, Tench and Pike. The eastern end of this length is quite secluded and known to hold some quite large Carp.
Bridge 13 – Bridge 15 Wrenbury Heath
This stretch of the Llangollen Canal offers good fishing in and around the pretty Cheshire village of Wrenbury. The canal here is both quite shallow and clear and abounds with weed growth combining to make a rich aquatic habitat. As a result the fish grow well and specimens of all canal species can be founds here.
Bridge 15 – Bridge 22 Wrenbury Hall
This stretch of the Llangollen Canal offers good fishing in and around the pretty Cheshire village of Wrenbury.The canal here is both quite shallow and clear and abounds with weed growth combining to make a rich aquatic habitat. As a result the fish grow well, and specimens of all canal species can be found here.
Bridge 25 – Bridge 33 Grindley Brook
Another prime stretch of the Llangollen canal which we have from bridge 25 at Quoisley right through to bridge 33 at Whitchurch. This canal passes through Norbury, Quoisley, Grindley Brook and to just beyond Whitchurch. It’s considered very good fishing particularly through the quieter boat traffic period.
The following is a link to the Improve Your Canal Fishing videos with Simon Mottram (Motty) . A great set of videos for those wishing to learn more about or get into canal fishing!
