Canals Trust

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).

Game Fishing

Sorry nothing coming up in my search for trout. Looking at Syon Park I would say it would be good for people with reduced mobility. The same applies to the Walthamstow lakes, as I recall they are concrete tanks. Casting would be ok but you would need help landing a fish.

Anyone have knowledge of a disabled accessible fishery email us please.
