Withnell Angling Club is based in the Withnell Parish boundary, a group
of small villages in between Chorley and Blackburn. It was set up in
1967, mainly to promote fishing for young people in the local area.
Since then the club has grown, offering a variety of good coarse fishing to all anglers.
The club has nine coarse fishing still-waters, and a stretch of river on
the River Darwen, near Samlesbury. These waters contain a variety of
coarse fish species such as Carp, Bream, Roach, Rudd, Perch, Crucian
Carp, Tench, Chub, F1 Carp, Golden Orfe, Ide, Eels and Pike.
All of these waters can be fished when purchasing a Withnell Angling club permit.
