I am delighted to be able to report that following very positive negotiations with Wigan & District Angling Association, we have agreed that the Rufford Canal will be fishable by members of both Associations along it entire length.
Please note that any bait restrictions on each of the Associations length of the canal will still apply and matches must be booked via the appropriate match secretary of the controlling Association.
We believe that this is a very positive step for the anglers of both Associations.
For clarity I have detailed the controlling Associations length of the Rufford Canal below:
Wigan AA control between bridges 1 to 7
Southport DAA control between bridges 7 to 12, which is the swing bridge at Tarleton
