The non fishery managers at Lee Valley Regional Park have decided to introduce car parking charges at a number of sites across the park in order to generate additional revenue. This is partly due to local authority councillors sitting on the management board deciding to reduce the amount their authorities have to payto run the park. under the act of parliament that set up the park in the 1960s.
Charges will be made using an ANPR camera installation in the two authority car parks (Fishers Green and Hooks Marsh) but not the anglers car parks behind the anglers padlocked gate at Stubbins Hall Lane.
With the exception of official BDAC matches (see handbook) keepnets are banned on all fisheries until further notice, due to a KHV outbreak in Essex. Please ensure landing nets, stink bags, carp mats, weigh slings etc are dried in sunlight before bringing them to club waters.
Volunteer bailiffs needed, please contact Robin Driscoll 07732-695586.
Please note: Current members will receive their renewal document during the last part of February along with their copy of the Club’s annual newsletter. They need do nothing until they receive these and only contact the Helpline if they haven’t got this by the middle of March.
From 1st May 2018 an additional permit will be required to fish at Barleylands, Crays Hill & Laundry Lake, Little Easton between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. This has been introduced for the welfare of the carp at both waters, and to avoid angling pressure caused by overcrowding.
Please apply for this permit at the time of joining/renewing. Night fishing at Barleylands is available to existing members at no extra cost until 31st March 2018. Night fishing at Laundry Lake is only available from 1st May 2018, and is on a one season trial basis.
A single fee for each water will be £40, but for those wishing to night fish both the discounted fee will be £60.
Leaving gates open WILL lose Club waters, and anyone found leaving or entering fisheries without locking our gates WILL face serious disciplinary action from the Committee.
