Our Bailiff's report that the winter floods have changed some of the pools and the bank conditions in places at Fenton. So please take care when you visit. Don't assume river bed and conditions are the same as last year. Thank you.

We have just received confirmation from the Angling Trust that all forms of angling including night fishing, charter boat angling and match fishing will be able to resume from March 29th under new Covid guidance for the return of outdoor sports and recreation in England. This also means that the "stay at home" restriction will be lifted then as well. Full details can be found on the Angling Trust Website here:
