Gasping fish hotline

If you see fish in distress and/or gasping on the surface at any of our fisheries please contact Ken Saffill on 07585 802284 or by email on seafisherken@gmail.com

If Ken is not available you can also contact Ben at the Environment Agency on 03708 506506.

Ken will be able to test the dissolved oxygen levels to determine if this is the cause of the situation and has access to aeration pumps to deploy them at the venue.

Keepnets are now banned due to continued hot weather

Keepnets are now completely banned on all of our stillwaters with immediate effect as a result of 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 at the August 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 going up at all of our stillwaters in the next few days.

Please contact Keith if you are wanting to fish the Senior Citizens Cup which would have been held at Rook Hall on Tue 24th Jul to find out the alternative arrangements.

Howells gate

The Howells gate is regularly being left unlocked by members, not farm workers.  While we appreciate that the padlock can be a bit tricky to close at the best of times, the next person caught leaving the gate unsecured will be made an example of - The Howells Bailiffing Team.

Leave litter – leave the club

Please note that we have already issued one life ban this year for leaving litter.  Please help us keep this figure below two by taking all of your rubbish home with you.
