Large Carp, Pike, Perch, Chub and Roach are also caught on this stretch. This stretch of river is in one of the most beautiful settings with Hartslock Wood opposite and conjures up thoughts of Wind in the Willows.A contructed stretch of canal approximately 10mtrs wide with a good 50 platforms. Known species are Carp and Tench and lots of small silver fish. This canal fishes particularly well when the River Thames is in flood.
