Wide Hole is a wide basin on the off-side of the Macclesfield Canal, at Poynton. The water and the field adjacent is owned by the Association. Fish congregate here to take refuge off the canal. It provides good fishing for bream, roach, and pike in winter.
There is room for a few cars to park in Lyme Road, over the canal bridge. Access the fishery by the gate on the right, just over the cattle grid. There are approximately a dozen comfortable fishing pegs. Fishing is best done with pole, waggler or swimfeeder. Pike can be caught on small deadbaits or lures.
