Kelvin’s best ever day at Rook Hall

After raking out endless blanket weed at Rook Hall today, ended up having my best ever day at Rook Hall. 18 Tench, biggest 4.75lb smallest 2.5lb and a few Rudd and Roach. Too many for my unhooking mat so I made a fish friendly mat/container out of all the weed I had pulled out. Don’t think I’ll ever better that, have to find a new favourite venue now – Kelvin

Dyofix applied at Rook Hall

We have applied Dyofix to the front and middle lakes at Rook Hall this afternoon, hopefully it will keep the weed growth down.  I will monitor and top up as necessary – Peter (Rook Hall Head Bailiff).

Dyofix is a coloured dye which helps prevent sunlight reaching the bottom of the lake and in doing so inhibits weed growth at this time if year.  We have opted to use ‘Special C’ Dyofix this year having used other colours previously with varying degrees of success.

Rook Hall and Whitehouse Farm re-open

All three lakes at Rook Hall and our Whitehouse Farm fishery are now re-open to members after their four month shut down for duck shooting.  As in previous years expect the water level at Rook Hall to be on the high side and the track at Whitehouse Farm to be slippery.

A wintry Whitehouse Farm.

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 Thursday 1st Feb 2018.  There are also occasional duck shoots at Slough House West and Little London so please keep an eye out for signs at the entrance to these fisheries, especially on Fridays.

Night fishing at Bog Grove has now started and runs through until the 30th April 2018.

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.

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

Rook Hall will be open for fishing on the 12th and 13th Aug

On the 12th and 13th August there is a Military and Flying Machine Show close to Rook Hall but the owner has told us that the gate will be open and fishing is allowed for members on both days. Parking will be to the left as you drive in and just tell the people on the gate that you are fishing.  More info about the event can be found at http://www.militaryandflyingmachines.org.uk/about/Whatson.html.
