PARKING AT STOUR PROVOST

"Parking should NOT be on the lawn/verge of Mill House"

"Access is through the small wooden gate and along the footpath in front of the Mill House Garden, past the small Mill and over the bridge into the field on the opposite bank of the river."


After a committee meeting held yesterday 2/7/2020 a number of items were discussed and agreed. It was decided to relax the booking system on Lodden lakes with effect from 6/7/2020. This means that you do not need to book but there are still a number of rules in place.
1. Pegs 1-6 on the small lake Lodden can only be used for night fishing. (Obviously you can fish during the day as well!)
2. The gate code will have been emailed to Lodden Members.
3. All members who fish the Lodden venue for a period of 48 hours may not fish the lakes again until a period of 24 hours has elapsed.
4. Keep nets are still NOT allowed on all the clubs STILL waters and will be reviewed end of September 2020.
 
5. There are NO dogs allowed on any of the clubs STILL waters either pleasure or match fishing.
6. The weed in Lodden will be cut where appropriate and the Dye still applied when it will have the most effect.


The Coarse season started 16/6/2020 on our River and the 19/20 memberships have now ended, so unless you have purchased a new membership or renewed your old one you will be unable to fish our waters or club matches.
Its easy to join just follow the link above.
