With boat fishing commencing tomorrow at Chew valley, we’ve been busy making sure our Woodford site is ready.
We’ve installed signage, hand sanitizing units, flooring markers, changed layouts, installed physical barriers and changed to a single route of flow. phhheewwww, its been busy!
A few things to be wary of when visiting site:
Further to our announcement yesterday we are pleased to announce that Chew Valley boat tickets will become available to purchase via Ticketsource on Monday 29th June at 7:00pm.
The Woodford restaurant on site is planning to re open on Saturday 28th July, a breakfast provision will be available dependent on levels of interest. A full English including toast and a choice of tea or coffee is available at a set price of £10.00pp. Booking is essential and should be made by Tuesday 30th June at the latest. To book for breakfast please contact the Woodford team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Its been a manic day for our team today making final preparations for Blagdon reopening to boat fishing tomorrow. We are fully booked for tomorrow, Thursday and Friday with prepaid anglers but tickets for the Saturday and Sunday will be available as of 11am tomorrow morning.
Check out our Ticketsource page HERE to purchase. We are NOT accepting bookings via phone, messenger or email.

A few questions relating to bank fishing permits cropping up. Some guidance:
We have simplified our bank permit offerings since reopening our waters. This is a temporary measure to get an online booking system up and running quickly. There are two ticket variations, a Chew/Blagdon permit and a Barrow permit.
Bank permits are available online from Ticketsource. See the link HERE to purchase.
Sadly, providing a online booking facility has its associated costs to both our provider and us. A £1.00 booking fee is in place for every permit purchased to cover admin costs associated with providing this facility.
We are monitoring the number of tickets available. On some days, ticket numbers available may be reduced compared with other days. We are monitoring weather conditions which impact available bank space. On windier days, there might not be as many tickets available at some waters. Tickets are selling out fast, so be quick to make sure you don’t miss out. Regularly check Ticketsource. We don’t want to overcrowd banks and we don’t want anglers turning up disappointed that they cannot find a safe space to fish.
Tickets are being released in batches once we have a better understanding of the weather ahead. As an example, tickets for Wednesday and Thursday of next week will be released as of 9 am tomorrow morning so keep checking Ticketsource regularly.
Juniors can fish for FREE when accompanied by a full paying adult. Should a junior wish to purchase a permit for themselves only, call our team at 01275 332339 and we will be happy to assist.
One of the big disadvantages of the current system is that there is no online catch return entry system. At present we are asking customers to send in catch returns to email@example.com . Remember, blank returns are as important as bag limit returns.
Access codes, rule and regulations and other bits. Where will I find these details?
When purchasing a ticket you will find links to all of the relevant information for our fisheries. An access code will be on show on your e-ticket. Please do not disclose this code to others. It can be used for all access gates around our sites. Please lock gates behind you.
