Keepnets @ Lodden
As catch rates increase due to the better weather and with more people on the bank, we hope all anglers stay aware of fish safety, health and welfare.
With this in mind we suggest anglers at Lodden who are using keepnets during pleasure sessions, ensure
net weights are kept below 50lb and fish are kept for NO longer than 5 hours in keepnets.
We will monitor this through the summer period and make changes if required.
Random keepnet checks will be made!

Message from Chairman Pete Edwards
Attention Carp anglers - Several discarded/lost lengths of terminal tackle have been found around the small lake at Lodden Unfortunately these have had barbed hooks attached. Barbed hooks are not permitted at Lodden lakes. If you ignore this rule, you risk the sanction of being banned. You have been warned. Also, the current rules allow one non angling guest to accompany you while you fish, this rule does not mean that you can have multiple visitors to your peg during your session. This is annoying to other anglers. There will also be increased bailiff visits to ensure that barbed hooks are not being used and anglers are respecting the rules of Lodden lakes.
Parking at Stour Provost
Pleasure anglers can park where the old barn used to be, park on the left hand where the garages are, do not park in the space on the right hand side of the new house and avoid parking on any grassed areas, plus please leave enough room for tractors getting in and out.
Would all members please note!
"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."
WOULD ALL MEMBERS FISHING OUR LAKES PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLY BARBLESS HOOKS MAY BE USED. THAT INCLUDES TREBLES THAT MAY BE USED IN PIKE FISHING. WITH AN INCREASE IN OUR BAILIFFS THEY WILL BE CHECKING THAT THE CORRECT HOOKS ARE USED SO PLEASE UNDERSTAND IF ASKED TO SHOW YOUR HOOKS THAT WE ARE PROTECTING OUR FISH STOCKS.
PLEASE BE AWARE THERE ARE CAMERAS IN OPERATION ON LODDEN LAKES AND YOUR ACTIONS COULD BE BEING FILMED AT ALL TIMES!
