The Napindan Channel Bridge at C6 - Short Cut to Bicutan, Sucat and Alabang

Have bike, we will help save the earth...

These are the views of the Napindan Channel at C6.  There are duck raising farrms near the banks, there are ambulant vendors near the lakeshore and plenty of entrepreneurial activities.

The Napindan channel is where the Laguna Lake connects to the Pasig River.  It is where they regulate the flow of Pasig river water (which is brackish) into the Laguna Lake, or drains the Laguna Lake into the Manila bay when the Laguna Lake water level is high (as it is now).  There are flood gates which regulate flow of water.

So usually in the morning, when it is low tide in Manila bay, water from Laguna Lake flow to Pasig River.  When it is high tide, the gates are closed.

So it is  a good place to fish because there are plenty of manine and aquatic animals being carried by the flow.  All  you have to do is cast the net.

So you see a lot of fresh catch being sold by fish vendors here.
