  • Members are allowed to take THREE trout per day with a MAXIMUM of SIX trout in any one week. The week commences on Monday. All other fish must be carefully returned to the water unharmed. Catch and Release on barbless hooks wherever possible. There is a maximum of 8 fish to be caught in any one session and/or any one day
  • Maximum of 30 fish to be killed per member in any one season
  • All Browns and Blues are stocked on a catch and release basis only. Please be extremely careful in their handling and release. Please record any Browns and Blues in the Returns Book
  • All members must sign in before fishing and complete their returns after fishing (including nil returns). This is absolutely essential in the interest of stocking programmes
  • The water is deep and wading is strictly prohibited

  • HIGH TEMPERATURE CONTROLS will be applied during June, July and August annually, when catch and release will be suspended and a “Catch and Kill” policy introduced (excluding Browns, Blues and Rainbows 4lb and over). Normal kill limits detailed above will still apply. Introduction and removal of the HIGH TEMPERATURE CONTROLS will be communicated to all members as necessary
  • Receipt of a copy of these Rules are deemed to be accepted and fully understood by all members. Any breach of the above will result in the member having their membership terminated and receive a pro rata return of their membership subscription
