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.

In spring 2017 we restocked the Old River with 150 carp to 3lb and 500 tench to 1lb – there is a video of some of these restockings further down this page… scroll down !!

Its been fishing well.

Parking is available in the Boathouse Pub car park – M44 6DN
