Fishing in Wigan and local surrounds

Recommended Posts

Hi there all,

 

this is my first ever post on here.................

 

I live in Wigan where (so iM told) there are lots of ponds/lakes etc.

 

My problem is that I dont drive and was wondering if there are other anglers out there that might invite me along? Obviously I would pay for petrol etc......

 

I think this is an idea that should be adopted by more people in order to help the anglers that are unable to get to the decent ponds and also help the anglers that can get there keep their costs down.

Do you live nr scotchmans flash? There are a few good waters there to go at. Westwood is a good one, then there's Blackwaters. There's even the canal which I know is fishing well nr the giro bank at the Lochs.

Hi... Welcome to the forum.

 

I often fish Pennington FLash and the feeder rivers runing into and out of it.

 

There's a thread on here I'll look up which was really useful to me a few months ago....
