How can you tell which bit of a canal is owned by who. I have always fished canals i know i can fish but if a canals owned by an AC do you pay on the bank or do you have to pre pay.

Any help would be great.

Thanks Steve K

I find the easiest way to find out is to either do a search on Google or go into the nearest tackle shop to the canal in question. You may have to pay in many ways, sometimes you pay on the bank, sometimes in the tackle shop or in my case the local canal is run by a club and you can either get a yearly membership or just pay a dayticket on the bank.

If your not sure, just get your gear on the bank, set up and fish.

If you fish all day without any bother good for you.

If it's a day ticket water pay your dosh, if it's a club water just act all innocent and say you didn't see any signs, thay can only kick you off [;)]

good advice lee

if they don't have signes up does that mean that you are supposed to be a mind reader?

The easiest thing to do would be to contact British waterway, tell the what the bridge numbers are either side of the stretch you want to fish & they will be able to tell you who has the fishing rights on it.

That way you don't have to worry about falling foul of the law or getting known as a "guesting" angler (ie:poaching).
