The Canals Trust have over 2,000 miles of waterway to look after for the many interest groups who use them. With so much water it is no wonder that fishing is high on the list of activities.
The Trust issues a Waterway Wanderers Permit that entitles you to fish on an impressive amount of water throughout England and Wales (for just £20).
Little known due to their demise caused by water abstraction and pollution, Buckinghamshire has a couple of chalk streams, the river Chess and the Wye. Both rivers wander away unitl they join the Thames, both rivers have been rejuvenated by the eforts of interest groups who have work to reestablish these waters for wildlife and angling.
The Wye is the best option at present with a good head of trout, classic clear waters with brown trout in the 1lb range. Try FishPal they are handling bookings.
