Gargrave perch fishing

The Canal & River Trust run a scheme called Waterway Wanderers where anglers can buy a permit to fish lengths of canal not managed in the traditional way by local angling clubs. The canal around Gargrave is included on the permit and I've had a couple of short sessions perch fishing albeit with limited success! A friend of mine who lives near Skipton has a son who wants to try fishing and I've suggested we have a go on the Gargrave stretch, hence my recent visits. I think we shall wait a bit for the water to warm up first because fishing is hard work at the moment

  1. If it's anything like my local canal the Bridgewater Canal in Greater Manchester then between May and September you will catch lots of fish, October through to April however is a dead loss and feels very much like flogging a dead horse.
