3rd October – Whitley pool has been closed until further notice. Low oxygen levels reported this morning saw a quick response from E.A and members. The matter is in hand and the water will be open as soon as possible…. but not before its ready!!

The River Severn at Atcham/Wroxeter will be closed this Saturday 16th August from 14:00 for a Barbel coaching event.

Slaters Pit has a surface weed that we are aware of and the Estates team are dealing with having cleared a significant amount today, the fish are not in any danger at present however if you fish the venue and find any fish in distress please contact the Head Water Keeper who’s contact number is in your membership book.

The weed covering the pool is known as Azolla, this is a fast growing Non Native Invasive species and the smallest piece, transferred to other waters can cause major problems, as such we are asking ALL members who fish this water to ensure that ALL tackle, that comes into contact with the weed, is allowed to completely dry and is checked for particles of the weed BEFORE the tackle is used on any other water.

Slaters Pit Weed

Whilst the photo’s show that not all of the weed has been removed please be reassured that a close eye will be kept on it and further removals will take place. Unfortunately there is no way to completely eradicate this highly virilant weed……please don’t be responsible for our other waters becoming infested.

The club are pleased to announce that the River Bollin Tanyard Farm stretch has re-opened to members with immediate affect, a club lock has now been fitted to the main gate and members are reminded that this must be kept closed and locked at all times when entering or leaving the field. Parking has been agreed with the owner and members are allowed to drive down to the area before the road bridge when conditions allow but must not take their vehicles beyond this point at any time.

Estates have completed the stiles today, big thank you to PJW and John for their hard work. The owner has also requested that all members are informed that if they find the entry gate locked when they arrive then it must be locked when they’ve passed through it. The same goes for all the other gates…they must be closed once they have passed through them, thank you.

Wychwood TVThe Wroxeter stretch of the River Severn will be closed to anglers until 6pm on Friday 12th July. The fields to the left and right of the main car park will be open and have been producing barbel in numbers according to reports earlier tonight.

Also known as Poachers Field the length at Wroxeter will be host to Wychwood TV who are filming a river feature and looking to do battle with the local residents of barbel and chub who have gone to double figures in recent weeks, Lymm AC wish all concerned good luck and we look forward to seeing the production in the near future.

Wrinehill Pool will re-open from 9am on Monday 10th June, thanks to all our members for being patient and monitoring the activity on a daily basis!! The Head Water Keeper will be assessing other waters and updates will be published as soon as we have them, tight lines for the new season.

This post will be updated frequently to keep members informed on waters affected by the weather and any spawning activity. The Head Water Keeper John Stubbs will (along with the water keeping teams) provide the information about activity on each water.

Only the waters listed below are affected at present so it’s reasonably safe to assume all other waters are open but you should always consult the specific waters notice board before starting fishing.

There are active posts on the subject on the forum at the moment but if you do have any information about spawning activity on our waters that would be useful for other members to know then please Contact Us.
