Hi,
I am on a canal boat on the canal for 4 nights and hope to fish most days around dawn and dusk. Is this a good idea?
I'm a sea angler but thought I'd try coarse fishing. Any advice about locations, fish techniques or bait specific to this area would be awesome. I'm going on sep 23rd

Check out Skipton Angling Assoc's info and facebook pages. It's in the middle of the area you will be in. I presume you'll pick up the boat at Silsden which is about 4/5 miles south of Skipton. East Marton is about another 4/5 miles further on from Skipton heading west in Liverpool direction. Passing boat traffic by day can be troublesome so yes, early and late fishing probably best. It's much quieter after going past Gargrave. Do try Bizzie Lizzzie's fish & chips in Skipton Happy memories!
