Remember to bring your current ID card, and payment is by cheque or cash, no card payments can be taken. Also we remind you to renew your EA licence before fishing, if you haven't already done it.
Good luck for the season!
Its time to communicate an update about Rawlings Retreat, because things have been changing. Firstly Warwicks water is open as a crucian only fishery. Please go and give it a try with your light tackle and see if you can catch the shy species. Please let us know what you catch. There are fish refuges in each corner about a pole length out, and the lilies provide good cover too. The tapes are there to deter cromorants but you won't need to cast far.
Also Alders is fishing well since the additional bream and the weeds have been reduced by the blue dye. People are catching tench, bream, and sometimes a chub. Its also got lots of perch. Now that the rafts and chicken wire is gone you can cast right into the middle shallows too. One again please let us know how you get on.
Today a delivery of bream were added to Alders. To avoid cormorant predation we chose to take 2lb fish, a total of 75 were added. Hopefully these will boost match weights for the coming years. My thanks to Charlie Paddick and Mervyn Burrows for receving the delivery.
