Manchester area - mixed venue for beginner

Hi. I'm looking for a bit of advice for a venue around north manchester, bolton, oldham, rochdale, bury.

My lad turns 9 soon and has been pestering me to take him fishing. I used to fish a long time ago, but only on a casual basis. Keen to get back into it with him.

To get him hooked, I want to take him to a good venue with a high chance of catching. I'm not originally from the manchester area, so dont know it well for fishing. Where would people recommend? Was looking at Bradshaw Hall or Church Gardens. As I say, it's more important that we catch - I figure that a high number of small fish is better then a couple of big ones if you want to keep a young lad interested. Any advice is much appreciated.
