Following the damaging winter floods the following waters can be opened, with the restrictions below. Please make sure you have your new EA licence:
Collins, Knotts and Dobsons will partially re-open on Friday18th April. On Collins only pegs 1 to 8 will be available, on Dobsons pegs 5 to 40 and on Knotts pegs 1 to 20. Other areas have been cordoned off and the restrictions apply as these areas are still drying out. Palletts will re-open fully but take care as the river is still running into the lake around peg 3.
Bellwood and Dixons will remain closed but will be reassessed at regular intervals. Please respect the signs and do not enter the areas that are cordoned off. Anyone entering or fishing in the restricted areas will be reported to the committee.
It's that time of year again to buy your rod licence, your current one will expire on 31st March. Although your club permit is still valid until June 15, if you intend to fish in the traditional closed season, you will need to plan ahead and order it.
You can either go to the Post Office, or simpler still order it directly on line through the Environment Agency from the comfort of home, or on your tablet while out fishing.
Due the flooding situation the club has been forced to close the following waters to all members, unless specifically permitted by the Fishery Manager: Widmead Complex, Palletts Pool, Bellwood. This is because of deep and in some cases fast flowing floodwater still present in the fisheries. We have been advised that the EA plan to repair the breach in the Kennet soon, which should relieve the situation in Widmead. If you have a question about this notice please contact the Fishery Manager using the number on your permit.
