Many of our visitors come for the excellent fishing. The beautiful Barrow Navigation waters provide a haven for both the novice and experienced angler.

Game anglers will find trout and salmon fishing, while their course fishing friends will enjoy excellent bream, tench, rudd and pike fishing throughout the season.

Permits are required to fish for salmon and trout. These are available from the local angling clubs or tackle shops.

Fish the Barrow for Salmon, Brown Trout, Pike, Bream, Rudd and Perch. On the canal you may find Pike, Bream, Rudd and Tench.
