Merseyside.....Widnes - Sankey Valley Park WA5 2UJ (both)

Time to share one of my best kept secrets with you, Easy fishing easy to get to and produces some very nice Flounder & eels this is the route the salmon also take to reach the weir in warrington and also people say bass have been caught but i am yet to see this decide for yourself!

You can fish high or low as there is always water in the deep channel that the boats use fishing on lug and mak will always do on flapper rigs, you can always fish and have a pint at the same time very very quiet pub no idiots around http://www.theferrytavern.com/
