Angling at Broadwater Canal

This shallow water is part of the derelict Lagan Navigation Canal. It is popular as a winter pike fishery and pleasure angling venue. It can be dangerous to step off the towpath as there is a layer of floating vegetation which does not support an angler's weight

    How to get there

    From the M1 junction 9 (Moira roundabout), follow the A26 for almost a mile. Turn left for Soldierstown Road then follow the B105 out of the village for almost a mile. The car park is on the left just after the hump back bridge. Take care when driving from the car park due to limited road visibility.
