The following new fishing rules were agreed at our June committee meeting and will take effect immediately.
All our waters.
Rule 30. Anglers found to be fishing on any of our waters without a day or season membership will no longer be asked to purchase a day ticket. Instead they will be asked to leave the water immediately.
Barbless hooks only to be used on all our waters. To aid bait retention specialist hooks for mounting dead baits can have a barb on one point only per treble hook.
Treowen Lakes only.
Members fishing on the Large Lake can fish with one rod only at a time. This rule might be extended in future to include all our still waters, when a review takes place in September.
Some changes are to be ‘recommendations’ and not ‘rules’ at this stage are as follows.
Treowen lakes. Requests and recommendations.
We have to take action to reduce the numbers of tench found with serious injuries to their mouths.
Members must use appropriate tackle and tactics when when fishing here. The use of unsuitable rods, lines and methods, such as are more suited to river fishing for barbel or large carp, will be strongly deterred from doing so in future. Please read the relevant articles elsewhere on this website.
The owners of Treowen Estate have reminded us that the roads and land on the estate are private property. They have requested that members display some visible indication in their vehicles to show that they are parked there legitimately.
We will seek a way of making suitable labels or notices available in 2020 but in the meantime we ask that members use their own initiative to this end.
