Old River Irwell – Irlam

Devastated by a pollution incident in the summer of 2008 this lake is now making a strong recovery.
We have restocked in 2012/13 with 5,000 tench and bream, ,1000 rudd in 2014 and the existing roach, perch and pike population seem to be recovering without any assistance from us.

If you’re feeling adventurous the Ship Canal is worth a cast or two – be very careful about the wash from passing ships!
