December News letter

Hi all

Well we are in to winter and again the weather this year so far is still very mild, we have only had a couple of frosts so the fish still seem very active looking at the lakes, Carp and Bream still rolling on hithermoor and moorlane. The river colne has been producing Chub and Barbel both ends would like some pictures of your catches to promote the club please and also dont forget we have trophys for most fish you could be top rod !. We had a work party at Moorlane to start clearing the area to the right of the bridge.


This is part of a proposed restocking plan we have for the front lake taking the enviroment agencies advise on creating and nursery area for small fish. The work party have cleared the first section as you can see in pictures with great results. We will be planning more work partys for this project and hope to get more members involved. The next club meeting is on the 19th of January at 8pm# all members welcome. We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. Hope to see you on the bank with all your new tackle you have recieved for Christmas.

Calling all members we are going to have a work party at moorlane next Sunday the 18th at 9:30 am. Sorry it’s short notice but we would very much appreciate all that can spare a couple of hours. We will be cutting down and trimming trees and bushes as part of the work recommended by the environment agency to create a nursery for juvenile fish as part of a restocking program. Please bring tools if you can.

News Letter August

Hi all ill start with a big thank you to all that attended the work parties at Moorlane and hithermoor, We had good numbers on both days which really makes it easier to complete our aims in keeping our waters enjoyable for all anglers.

The colne has been fishing up and down with the weather but still getting news of Chub and Barbel coming out along both ends of the river. Also good numbers of Roach, Dace, Rudd & Chub being caught to float fished maggots with the occasional Small Barbel (under a pound) showing which is great for the future.

The Floodrelief fished well for the first half of August with Lots of Bream coming out to all methods,The occasional Tench has been reported as well as one coming out in the silvers match and plenty of silver fish.  Carp have been showing them selfs for the first couple of weeks but then stopped feeding for the last couple of weeks as they do with the weather being so warm but lets hope they are hungry for the cap match ? .

Moorlane front lake has fished very slow with Rudd and Tench reported but lots of weed present so limiting swims, The Bailiffs have been regularly raking swims but is very time comsuming and hard work in the hot weather.If you wish to rake a swim please feel free to do so but only if no one else is fishing !

Moorlane Long lake has been fishing very well with reports of Carp from the surface and bottom, Tench getting caught on the method and Bream caught by any method. Rudd and Roach in numbers to maggot Ledgered or float fished with the odd skimmer mixed in.

TVAA waters, Sadly we never get any reports about these so if you fish them would you please give us a small catch report so i can add it to the next News Letter.


Septembers meeting is on Thursday 15th at 8pm at the wheatsheaf Pub in Stanwell please feel free to come along.
