Autumn reminder

Members are reminded that Rook Hall and Whitehouse Farm reservoir are now closed for the 4 month duck shooting season and will re-open on Friday 1st Feb 2019.  Night fishing at Bog Grove has now started for all night permit holders and runs through until the 30th April 2019.

3 rods are now allowed on all venues for all standard night permit and Howells night permit holders as well as for members who have purchased the £30 winter 3 rod upgrade.  Regardless of which night permit you have you can use 3 rods on all venues including Howells.

As we still have standard night permits for sale members now can upgrade to a night ticket for £32.50 (or just £2.50 if you already have a £30 winter 3 rod upgrade).

Two consecutive nights are allowed on Slough House Farm from Thu 1st Nov.

The sun sets on another summer’s fishing at Rook Hall.

Keepnet ban lifted on all venues

Keepnets can now be used at all of our fisheries.

Members only

Please remember that EVERYONE visiting a Society fishery must be a card carrying member (rule 1.4 refers).  Fishing while accompanied by non-members can result in a warning/suspension from the Society.

Please don’t forget your membership card on the canal

Members are reminded to carry their membership cards with them when fishing the canal or be asked to buy a day ticket.

Venue change for match on 24th July

As a result of the blanket keepnet ban on all Society stillwaters the 24th July concessionary match will be fished at Heybridge Basin instead of Rook Hall.

Keepnets are still banned due to the continued hot weather

Keepnets are still completely banned on all of our stillwaters as the unexpectedly hot summer by British standards is predicted to continue for at least the next couple of weeks.  This ban is due to reduced oxygen levels in the margins brought on by the continued hot weather.  We have been monitoring dissolved oxygen levels in the margins with our oxygen meter over the last few weeks and levels have continued to drop forcing the committee to act now to protect the welfare of our valuable fish stocks.  This decision will be reviewed again at the September committee meeting.  The ban includes matches but excludes our river sections where the flowing water helps maintain a higher level of dissolved oxygen.

Our oxygen meter has been well used in the last few months.

This is the notice that you will see at the entrance to our stillwaters.
