We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Places to fish

Did you know that we look after 2,000 miles of canals and rivers, plus several reservoirs - and you can fish nearly all of them? Here's where to find out what you need, when and where you can go fishing...

Check our checklist...

1. Do you have your rod licence?

2. Do you know where you'd like to fish?

3. Do you have a permit to fish where you'd like to fish?

4. Do you know whether you need to contact an angling club for your permit or contact us for a waterways wonderers permit?

5. Do you have enough tea and sandwiches to keep you going while you fish? (Unlike the above, not something you must have before you go fishing - but definitely recommended!)
