The club has just over 11 miles of fishing along the Grand Union Canal. this part of the Grand Union canal is considered by many to be the best canal fishing in the country in fact it has appeared in many of the angling magazines and newspapers and has been featured on many DVD's and TV shows. 

The average depth is about 1.25 metres in the boat channel although some stretches are deeper with the marginal shelves being considerably shallower.

During the summer months there is a relatively high level of leisure boat traffic which can disturb the water, however when the boat traffic quietens down many anglers enjoy the good stocks of Roach, Perch, Bream, Carp and Gudgeon.

Perch have been caught over 3lb and there are also large carp in many of the sections.

The milder spells of weather during the winter months can provide double figure bags of Roach, as well as good Bream and Perch, whilst The carp angler will find that the carp are active at any time of the season.

The Clubs right to fish is exercised from the towpaths only and the offside bank where accessible legitimately by the public.

 

Day Tickets are available on the bank from one of our appointed bailiffs although some sections are for members only and also some sections have a legering ban

2019 Day Ticket Prices

Adult £6.00 per day

Concession (OAP and Disabled) £3.00 per day

Juniors £2.00 per day

Night Fishing is only available to Club Members on certain sections. Day Ticket anglers are not permitted to night fish. Night fishing is defined as from 1 hour after sunset to 1 hour before sunrise. These are arrival and departure times and not start/stop fishing times. 

Please make sure you have an EA rod licence the sections are regularly patrolled by both club and EA Bailiffs.

 

There are several sections affected by overhead power lines and these are clearly signed but please remember to check around you before you start fishing.
