Dawn to Dusk fishing only unless in possession of a night ticket
Fishing rights are leased from the basin at Keadby to Mauds Bridge , with access on the South bank.
The canal has a good stock of fish, especially in late spring through to Autumn when large numbers of fish are present throughout the whole stretch. In winter, many fish migrate to overwinter and spawn in the slightly warmer and sheltered waters around Thorne. Main species are Roach, Bream, perch, Roach/ bream hybrids, tench (to 7lb plus) , Rudd, Eels, Pike ( to 30lb) and a few chub, dace and bleak.
Anglers can drive on the drain side and park behind their peg.
Note. No vehicles are allowed on the canal side at any time and the banks may be gated off and locked by the bailiffs discretion to prevent vehicle access if the banks are wet.
Please be mindful of walkers and cyclists when you ship back your pole.
