Fishery Rules 

The Lake and the Fish

No braided mainline or lead core to be used

All fish weighing 1lb or over must be landed correctly with an appropriate net and NOT swung to hand

Fixed rigs are to be made safe so as to allow any lost fish to be able to easily rid themselves of any terminal tackle

Barbless and micro barbed hooks only may be used

No artificial baits – please carefully consider your bait and ensure it is of the highest quality

No bait boats

No keep-nets except in matches or lessons

All nets, mats, weigh-slings etc. brought onto the fishery must be dry before usage.

Fellow Fishermen & Women

No Dogs allowed on the fishery premises

No playing of radio and/or recorded music, shouting or loud noises

Use of mobile phones to be kept to a minimum

No excessive use of alcohol

No reserved pegs (except for matches)

Any juniors (under 16) to be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult

No visitors after dark – Last entry: 5pm (Nov-Feb: 12 noon)

The proprietors may at any time remove any individuals if they are considered to be responsible for a) Anti-social behaviour and/or b) Disturbing the peaceful enjoyment of other fellow fishermen and women.

The Environment

No fires, bar-b-q’s or bright lights

No use of fire arms

Fishing is only permitted from designated pegs – If pegs are out of use this is because either remedial work is being undertaken or for the protection of wildlife (e.g. birds nesting nearby)

Keep to paths and peg areas – Please note that we manage all the grounds surrounding the lake to protect and enhance the local flora and fauna

Responsible Removal of Litter – Please tidy up your peg before leaving and take home with you all your belongings and any items of litter from your stay (this includes line and cigarette ends)
