We are monitoring government guidance with respect to Covid carefully and are also aware that across the industry fisheries may be taking differing approaches to opening their waters for season 2021.
The UK government has announced that details of the ‘roadmap forward’ will be provided on the 22nd February. We remain committed to fishing on our lakes but must adhere to COVID restrictions for the safety of our customers and employees.
At this time the fishery has decided to delay opening dates but will continue to monitor changing guidance in coming weeks. The proposed new opening dates are as follows:
10th March- Special Season ticket opening day on the banks at Chew Valley, Blagdon and Barrow tanks.
11th March- Official bank fishing opening day at Chew Valley, Blagdon and Barrow tanks and Blagdon boat fishing opening day.
18th March- Chew Valley boat fishing opening day.
We are currently unable to take payments for permits. An online booking system is being developed, any customers pencilled in for opening dates will be contacted next week.
