Marshside Re.opening

Due to the recent Government announcement on the 10th May 2020 of the easing of lockdown restrictions in regard to covid 19 we are pleased to announce the re-opening of our lakes at Marshside.
From the 13th May 2020 fishing is now permitted.
The lakes are to be opened on the understanding that strict social distancing must be adhered to and the current lockdown rules regarding travel and exercise be followed.
To help us to achieve the social distancing rules and to keep our staff and you the Anglers safe ,not all pegs will be available.
We intend to open 16 pegs on Homersham and 23 on Scroggins.All others are closed and will be marked closed
To achieve social distancing on the bank we are asking that the use of Day Shelters and Bivvies etc be prohibited between 7.00AM and 7.00 PM etc to enable Anglers to pass by at a safe distance. Night Fishing to be restricted to one night only .
We request that you contact us via Facebook , website or email before going to the venue to secure a place and avoid disappointment. Remember fishing without permission is illegal.
The toilets will be open but extreme caution and the use of hand sanitizers and gloves are recommended.

I ask everyone to be patient in the next few weeks as these are strange times and we are having to adapt to the ever changing guidelines. We the Anglers are the ambassadors of this sport / pastime and we must show that we respect and adhere to the current guidelines.

There are copies of the guidelines at each notice board area please take one or ask the bailiff ,Alternatively follow the links below.

It is the responsibility of the Angler to adhere to the current Government and Angling Trust Guidelines.
