" Kanaalke 1 "

Kanaalke 1 has got 4 swims where you can park your car and set up your bivvy. Two fishermen are allowed to fish per swim. Kanaalke 1 houses a bigger stock of carp with an average of 25 pounds. If you choose for this lake, you will catch more runs than pounds. But beware, there swim quite a few hits of 20kg that can take care of a nice treat.

" The History "

Het Kanaalke knows his origin in the period of the Limburg mines. The mine site of Houthalen-Helchteren started with the exploitation in 1927 and het Kanaalke was then excavated by the miners. Het Kanaalke foresaw the mine shafts of cooling water for the machinery and the miners of shower water. After the closure of the mine in Houthalen, Het Kanaalke became a fishing lake which was for many years fished by local people and organizations.

After several years of savagery of the domain, the fishermen stayed away and het Kanaalke came into oblivion, this to the regret of many local fishermen.

Gills & Scales worked very hard to recover everything in it’s original condition, both on the banks, as in the water. Fallen trees, snags and landfill waste were cleaned up, the swims were reconstructed and a lot of beautiful carp have been released into the water.
