TROTTING ON THE RIVER DOUGLAS


Recommended Posts

I bought a cheap centrepin a few months back and as yet it is unused but I'm dying to give it is debut especially now the closed season is coming to an end.

 

I own the Wigan AA card so I know that I can fish the Gathurst stretch but I don't know which areas are decent for trotting (ie, no shopping trolleys, cars, bags of kittens etc).

 

Also, are their any stretches of the Dougie or any nice streams not on the Wigan AA card that are free and fishable using trotting tactics.

I'm afraid the Dougy's not the best river for trotting due to rubbish/snaggs etc but also it is very shallow and snagging on the bottom even when fishing below 10 inch really does p*ss you off even more so now it's running very low. I think you'll find the tidal parts the better place for trotting (Rufford onwards).
