Fisheries Update Fish Care:

Welcome to the new river season.

Due to high summer temperatures and reduced oxygen levels and in some cases oxygen crashes, anglers must apply the following to protect fish during these conditions. We have seen information on fish deaths on other rivers and tributaries and must be cautious.

Anglers must all possess a landing net. Any person on our fisheries without a landing net will be asked to leave for breaching our fisheries rules. When specimen fishing, landing nets must be large enough to rest and recover caught fish. Keep net use is suspended.
Anglers must possess an unhooking mat when specimen fishing. These must be well wetted and cooled before use with fish.

All fish must be given plenty of time to recover before release. Wherever possible unhook in the water. Do not take fish up the banks. Photo shots must be taken very quickly and fish released immediately.

Pike fishing is suspended.

We shall be monitoring the temperatures and Oxygen levels and if they get significantly worse or the above abused, we will have to take further action at short notice.

If you see fish in distress or pollution, please report it via our contact page on our website or telephone and leave a message on our bailiff number 07976 020559.

We will update as and when these measures may be changed.
Please keep your eyes on our Facebook pages and website for updates before you go fishing.

Please protect yourselves whilst fishing and take plenty of water and sun cream.

Ensure all season and day ticket holders read the fisheries rules. A link is on the bottom of every permit emailed receipt and also available via our website.

Enjoy your fishing and thank you for your understanding.
