Not fished the river here for,any years, in fact I was a mod and riding a LI 150 Lambretta. I fished theoldbit of river that day as well as Ididtoday the peg next to the footbridge. Afish a chuck,nothing big but plenty of bites on maggot. Fishing the middle with a wagg, was going well until the breeze blew a great load of c**p on the surface in front of me.
I upped sticks and went below the locks. Same method with similar results, a fish a chuck but nothing big. Still it was an enjoyable morning. I fished from 6-0 am until 1-0 pm when the sun made life uncomfortable .
If anyone has any info on the pool by the side of the river I would be grateful for any tips, it looks an interesting bit of water.

Do you mean Newbridge Pool? If so, it's on the Winsford DAA card.
Fished it once, around 30 years ago. Didn't have the best day....some small tench & roach.

No I know Newbridge pool this one is called Vale Royal pool, I think. It is below the locks at Vale Royal in the trees between the river and the lane.
