2021 Latest Fishery News!

16th January 2021 - Ice free!

As it stands we are currently ice FREE!

After finally thawing out Tuesday afternoon, the fishery froze over again just a few hours later. It wasn’t until Thursday when the snow arrived that the ice fully disappeared.
Following the downpours on Wednesday and Thursday the reservoir levels have risen by around four inches and has taken on a mass of colour. Meanwhile the Lower Pond’s levels have also risen meaning some swims have suffered a little flooding.
The land surrounding both water is thoroughly saturated so please do not drive on any grassed areas.

Best of luck to all our members heading out! Here are three more of our ‘A-Team’ from the back end of last year to keep you going.
Very well done that man!

Breaking - 7th January 2021 - Fishery to re-open!

Thanks to the huge efforts of the Angling Trust, the governement have reconsidered their position on fishing and have now granted permission for the sport to continue. This means the fishery will now be open to our members but there are some strict guidelines to follow. They are:

  • DAWN til DUSK fishing only. No Night fishing whatsoever.
  • Travel and fish local. Stick to a small radius only.
  • You must only visit the site if you are fishing. NO visiting fellow anglers or 'Just having a walk round'!
  • You may attend with one other member of your household. No visitors whilst fishing, even if they are from the same household.
  • No visiting neighbouring swims or gatherings/socials.
  • You must not leave your swim & Tackle must not be left unattended for any length of time. Use of the toilet facility is the only exception. If you leave the site, your gear goes with you.
  • Basic social distancing guidelines must be applied in the build up to fishing.
  • MEMBERS ONLY! We are NOT a day ticket fishery nor operate on a group booking basis.

Any members found guilty of abusing these rules will be asked to leave immediately and even risk losing their ticket. They aren't difficult rules to follow so please abide by them, we will be monitoring the situation closely.
Again we should be extremely grateful to what the Angling trust has done for our sport and when you're out there fishing, show others that anglers aren't a cause for concern. Fish wisely & safely.

Finally, Just to round this slightly uplifting news off... Both lakes are frozen solid! and it looks to be staying that way till early next week.

Many Thanks & Tight Lines

Breaking - 5th January 2021 - Fishery Closed!

Following the governements latest decision to implement another National Lockdown, we regret to announce that the fishery will be now closed until further notice. We ask all of our members to NOT visit the site during this time for any reason whatsoever.
Further announcements will be made in due course.

Take Care & Stay Safe
Many Thanks

3rd January 2021 - Happy New Year!

Happy new Year & Welcome along to the 2021 newsfeed!
Here you will find all the latest happenings throughout the season. Be sure to keep an eye on our Social media pages too for round the clock updates.

We're kicking 2021 with a chilly one! The fishery has unfortunately suffered from freezing since late last week and whilst the reservoir is approx. 80% thawed, the Lower Pond remains unfishable with only a couple of small clear pockets due to bird life. Harsher temperatures are in the forecast so it is likely that we will encounter intermittent freezing but we shall keep you posted!

To get you in the mood for the new campaign and to warm those cockles a little, here's a great photo of the sort after 'Nemo' from last Autumn! A real unique creature! It sure is nice to see some greenery as well and I can assure you we are on the countdown to Spring!
