News Update

We have recently stocked a significant number of F1s into Strines, Disley Dam and Watford Lodge and also a large number of small common and mirrors into Disley Dam.

To protect these fish from avian predators we have also put ropes up at Watford and plan on implementing some other ideas as soon as possible. We would like to get these fish feeding and colouring the water at all these venues so could do with people down there casting a line and throwing some bait in and scaring any birds off!

Club meetings have been very sparsely attended and as a committee we are pushed to our limits with the few people who attend. If you would like to get involved with the running of the club drop me a message all help is appreciated.

Linnet Clough path warning

Linnet Clough can be particularly hazardous at this time of year with the boot sucking mud en route to the lake, but please take extra caution in the lower field where part of the path has slipped away. The farmer is aware and has placed a cordon around the area but please take care while walking the path.

Birch Vale closure 12th – 15th December

Please note the river (left) bank of Birch Vale will be closed from 12th – 15th December inclusive, while a number of trees are tidied up.  A shredder will be brought onsite and may need access down the right hand bank, so if you fish these dates and are using a bivvy be prepared to move! However as there will be chainsaw and shredding noise throughout these days possibly best to give the lake a miss altogether until work is complete.
