River Fishing – Starts June 16th

River fishing will return on 16th June.
Members are reminded to observe social distancing at all times and that individual anglers should be 15 metres apart.
This will present more of a challenge on the Chelmer and Blackwater canal than on the river proper, as anglers will be close to the tow path and therefore closer to passers by.
Please try and ensure that your tackle does not impede walkers from observing social distancing and remember also to use gloves and/or antiseptic wipes.
The Environment Agency in conjunction with the canal company are planning to install fishing platforms which will help, but the timetable for this has been held up by the pandemic.
One has been installed and this work continues, however and you might like to know that it is funded from angling licence income.
If possible, in order to keep numbers manageable, please try and avoid using busy stretches of the canal in the first few days of the season.
