My recent attempt on the local canal got me thinking about water clarity again. I cupped my liquidised bread in down the boat track, the deepest part of the canal at about 3', and could see the bread on the bottom. If I stood up, I could see my punch hookbait on the bottom. Too clear for me and so I only gave it 30 minutes and packed up. Saying that we always used to fish canals in winter, I can remember them being obviously clear, but don't recall having only 3' down the track. It means for me, my local canal isn't really a viable venue as you'd have to have at least a bit of boat traffic and colour to stand a chance of catching.
