One bream short of a ton

I have just received news that the CAA match at Beeleigh on Sunday was won by Chris Dyall with a top weight of 95lbs 4oz, 14 Bream the biggest weighing 10lbs.


Here are three of the Bream – we believe that 95lb 4oz is a river match record for the Chelmer & Blackwater canal, the next best weight that can be recalled is around 69lb.  If you know differently feel free to let our webmaster@maldonas.co.uk know.

JP Tackle now open on Sundays

Our main agent JP Tackle is now open on Sunday mornings between 8am and midday for memberships, keys, guest tickets, day tickets for the canal, bait, tackle and so much more.

Concessionary match change

The concessionary match on Tuesday 26th July listed as Heybridge Basin will be changed to Papermill Lock.

Our canal and river sections re-opened on 16th June

Our river sections re-opened to fishing on Thursday 16th June.  Even if you are not a member you can fish the Chelmer & Blackwater canal on a day ticket (cost £6 for adults on the bank, £4.50 for concessionaries and only £2 for juniors).  Adult day tickets are cheaper if bought in advance from JP Tackle in Maldon High Street.  Members of Maldon AS, Chelmsford AA, Colchester APS and Kelvedon DAA do not have to pay for a day ticket (on production of a valid membership card).  The River Blackwater stretches at Wickham Bishops and Langford are also now open and exclusive to Maldon AS members only.

Dan Hilton has once again tracked down one of the big bream in the canal

Not quite as big as last year’s double but still impressive at 9lb 8oz.

Our river sections are now closed

Members (and day ticket anglers) are reminded that our section of the River Blackwater and the whole of the River Chelmer / Chelmer & Blackwater canal are now closed for fishing until 16th June 2016.

Concessionary match on Tue 8th Mar moved to Little London

The 8th March concessionary match has been moved from the canal at Tesco’s to Little London Reservoir so we can catch.
