Fishing guide: the Wey Navigation

This page covers angling on the Wey Navigation canal: a 20 mile stretch of navigable waterway from Thames Lock in the north to Godalming Wharf in the south, running through 17 locks. The Wey Navigation is classified as a river by the EA and is thus subject to the standard coarse close season.
