AIRE AND CALDER CANAL, POLLINGTON, EAST YORK­SHIRE

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

THIS deep stretch of canal is well known for its ex­cel­lent roach and bream fish­ing –but if you pre­fer to fish lures, Pollington also has some­thing for you. Cast­ing small nat­u­ral pat­terns on small 2g jig heads down the mar­gins and twitch­ing them back to­wards you is a good tac­tic for get­ting lots of bites from small ‘wasp’ perch, along­side the chance of fish to 3lb.

If you’re specif­i­cally tar­get­ing the larger perch then small rat­tling plugs and larger soft plas­tic lures can work well.

There are also some pike along this canal, and there’s al­ways a chance of con­nect­ing with one of these when fish­ing with larger lures.
