The water is currently ‘run’ by Wigan Council but it seems they have, as a local told me ‘left it alone for sometime’. Baliffs haven’t been seen for a while and it seems this is a free fishing venue at the moment.
With two waters joining each other with a sluice the venue has hard standing pegs all the way round wide enough for a bivvy or bivvy brolly. Currently the sign states no night fishing however I have been told it can be fished at night, all the same the sign also says the gate is locked at 9pm, I believe this rarely happens.
It’s a quite attractive water well established with good cover of thick trees around to help keep the wind off.
Species are relative unknown however I have been told that it contains carp plus 20lb and the usual array of skimmers, roach and perch.
If you do see the baliff a day ticket is £5
