Canterbury & District Angling Association

In order to encourage participation in closed-season work-parties and to reward those members who give up their time to complete the same, Byelaw 16e has been amended with a minor change to the wording. ’Members may not occupy swims on Association waters more than 5 hours before the start of the season except that where such members have completed three approved working parties they may occupy swims no more than 12 hours before the start of the season. Fordwich Lake will be available between 8pm on June the 15th and 8pm on June 22nd only to local members who have completed three approved working parties and will be closed to all other members during those times.

We have regained Grove Lake and members will be able to fish from 16th June 2019. The same rules and bye laws shall continue as before. A gate and fencing have been installed
