Welcome!

19th May 2024 – Nutsey and Bob’s lakes are now open. All venues are now open, but please check back regularly for spawning updates.

New fish day! On Saturday 27th Jan 2024 we had the pleasure in stocking this beautiful 30lb 6oz Mirror into Nutsey. The fish is from VS Fisheries so of the highest quality and health.

Nutsey As requested, we have improvement work going on at Nutsey from 8th Jan for 3 weeks. This involves swims, track and the silt bag areas. You can still fish and have access, but should any of our staff request you to move them please do so for your own safety. Thanks, The Committee

Exchange books are no longer available due to lack of support from members.

A polite reminder that anyone caught fishing without an unhooking mat, or net big enough to cope with the size of fish in the lake will be asked to leave. Please remember to ensure all nets are totally dry before use. Thanks.
