The Canal du Nivernais links the Loire with the Seine following approximately the course of the river Yonne in a south to north direction, first climbing northeast & north to cross the Morvan watershed, then roughly following the course of the river Yonne south to north. Beginning on the Loire in the village of Saint Leger des Vignes the canal is situated entirely in the dpartement of Nievre reaching its half way point at the town of Clamecy & finishes in the town of Auxerre, situated on the river Yonne. The canal is 174km, 108 Miies long & has 112 locks. It is fed at its summit at Port Brulee by a feeder canal from the Panneciere reservoir, including an elegant aqueduct at Montreuillon. In its northerly course it is regularly fed by the Yonne & on the southern slope by the Aron. The summit level pound also comprises 3 tunnels. Although the feeder canal arrives at Port Brule the top of the canal is generally considered to be at Baye at the southern end of the tunnels. Public water. Carp, Catfish, Bream, Tench, Roach, Chub, Perch, Zander & Pike. DONT FORGET TO LET THEM KNOW WHERE YOU FOUND THEM www.carpinfo.co.uk
