Michael Flanagan, Angling Guide and Reporter, reports that he town stretch of Royal Canal is stuffed with coarse fish, and got a good cleaning last week by Waterways Ireland…

Shoals of rudd and roach are moving through the system, and I also spotted a few good size tench. Now with the school holidays on the way many of our younger Anglers will be out & about on the Royal Canal. Years back I picked up a fantastic Guide To the Royal Canal and its packed with useful information on the Royal Canal. It covers fish species, and wildlife that you will encounter on your trips along the canal. It also covers the history of the Royal and Grand Canal. In a 1755 Survey by Thomas Williams and John Cooley they planned out a Canal from Dublin to the North Shannon, using Rivers Rye water, Blackwater, Boyne, Deel, Yellow River, along with Inny, and Camlin Rivers, also Lough Derravaragh.In 1806 the Canal was completed to Mullingar.
