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
--MANDATORY NOTE TO ALL ANGLERS--
Due to a local outbreak of K.H.V. no keepnets to be used on any still waters. Dip tanks are in place on all stillwaters. Nets, mats and slings MUST be dipped (FULLY immersed) for a minimum of 15 minutes. Keep nets are allowed on the River Stour (only) from the start of the river season.
Pump House Lake is the middle sized of the three, and so named for the irrigation pump which is housed in the shed at the end of the lake, the inlet pipe runs out into the middle of the lake and can be clearly seen: beware of this man made snag when fishing the nearby swims. The lake is well stocked with Carp to 16-17lbs and Tench to 3lbs.
Only two sides of the lake are fishable, the other being tree lined, provides ideal cover for the Carp. All methods and baits will give good catches with early morning and evening being the best times.
