Trent and Mersey Canal Wedgewood lock Meaford bottom lock

Trent and Mersey Canal Wedgewood lock – Meaford bottom lock
This water is affected by overhead power lines.

Seven miles of prime canal fishing from Whieldon road in Stoke to Meaford bottom lock. A sadly underused stretch of canal possibly down to the abundance of commercial fisheries offering easy access and hungry fish.

For anglers with a more traditional mindset the canal should not be ignored. This water has produced some stunning catches in the past, most notably a near forty pounds match winning weight having broken two inches of ice in order to fish, plus the capture of numerous specimen carp well over the twenty pounds mark, whether you are a match, pleasure or roving specialist angler the fish are there to be caught from the humble ruffe and gudgeon to the mighty carp.

1. Fishing from Wedgewood lock to Meaford bottom lock.

2. Fishing from the towing path only.

3. No fishing within 30 metres of an overhead electric power line.

4. No Fires, No Guns, No litter.

5. Only full members and Associate member night permit holders may fish at night.

6. Due to the shortage of pegs on this length of canal please check match dates.
