Salford Quays

This venue has the potential to throw up some amazing fish.
The water is gin clear – so a thoughtful approach works best (forget your pole)

Carp to 30lb+
Pike to 33lb
Tench to 8lb
bream to 8lb
Roach and Rudd to 2lb

They’re all in there but catching them is a lot easier said than done.

Please be respectful of other water users, and only fish from designated fishing platforms
If you cast into the areas of the quays that are used by the water sports centre – you will be asked to leave.

* there has been recent conflict between anglers fishing from the designated fishing platform and swimmers using the open water swimming course – in the interests of being good neighbours please try to avoid fishing in the Ontario Basin during open water swimming sessions.

These sessions run at the following times:

Sunday morning 8.30am to 10.30am
Monday evening 6pm to 8pm
Thursday evening 6pm to 8pm

The Water Sports Centre have promised to redesign the course during winter 2016/17 and move the open water swimming course further away from the fishing platforms resulting in a removal of these fishing time restrictions in Spring 2017

Salford Quays is a SHARED water space – please be respectful of other water users…….

Here’s a short clip showing some of the nice carp that we restocked in October 2016… we plan more restocking in the future. More Quays info below the vid — keep scrolling
