The Grand Western Canal provides a quiet and relaxing venue with a good range of coarse angling opportunities. Of particular note are the summer Tench and winter Pike and Perch fishing. An excellent mixed fishery with above average stocking levels, means that the Canal presents a good challenge to anglers of all abilities with plenty of opportunities to find a quiet spot and enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Angling platforms, are located at various points through the park, allowing suitable, safe access for the less-abled angler.
Angling rights on the Canal are leased to the Tiverton and District Angling Club. In addition to holding a valid Environment Agency Rod Licence, a permit must be purchased, in advance, from either:
