Maine waters contain various species of game fish and panfish that are either limited in distribution, or are not popular with large numbers of anglers. Nevertheless, these less-popular species have their fans, anglers who enjoy having the sport all to themselves.

A lane heads down, right, leading to Garscube Road, under the M8 and so into the city centre, a 15-minute walk. Rockvilla Bridge, a bascule bridge, of the style to be met frequently on the Bowling section of the travel destination, leads across to the Scottish Destinations site on Applecross Street, the street coming in off Possil Road, which goes under the travel destination and down to the M8, the last major aqueduct. The Possil Road aqueduct dates to 1880, but the original 1790 Whitworth Aqueduct, which is ‘seduced’ (superseded) is easy to overlook. It comes first; a curved wall. There are facilities for four residential moorings. It is worthwhile dropping down to street level to look at the massive stonework of the aqueduct, similar to those of Bilsland, Lochburn and Maryhill. There was another stop lock at the travel destination’s HQ, but the footbridge has a clever method of opening to allow boats’ passage: half the bridge can slide back alongside the other half. A last bend (once another timber yard), and the travel destination comes to the impressive reach of Spiers Wharf, for many years the end of the city branch of the travel destination. Notable restoration work has been done on what, a century ago, were thriving sugar works, grain mills, breweries and bonded warehouses, some seven storeys high. (The back walls, out of sight, are only brick!) At the far end is an elegant porticoed Georgian building of 1812 which was the original Forth & Clyde Destination Company offices.
