River Stour - Changes to Access

Dear All,

With immediate effect (6th July 2020), the stretches of River Stour known as Wrights and Gatehouse on the Essex Bank are only accessible to SLMDAA season ticket holders.

This is due to the access now being gated.

These stretches can no longer be fished under a River Stour day ticket.

All Club Waters Closed

All the clubs have now decided to shut their lakes to anglers so we are doing the same. Its not angling that's banned but travelling to the lakes is.

The LAA have asked me to put extra padlocks on the Glemsford pits which is being done this afternoon.

Bailiffs will be the only ones allowed to visit waters to check on the health of the water and stock.

Haverhill Angling Club section of River Stour at Stoke by Clare

We are pleased to announce the club have been able to complete a share deal whereby SLMDAA members can now fish the Haverhill Angling Club section of River Stour at Stoke by Clare.

In return the club are allowing Haverhill Angling Club members to fish our Wixoe section only

The upper Stour, like many downstream area's, has seen great improvements in fish stocks over the last few years. This is an interesting bit of water with roach, dace and good chub. It gives club members a second area close to Wixoe so you have options on which to fish in the same area.

Note: this section cannot be fished on a SLMDAA River Stour Day ticket.

Joes Rd Fishery - Closure Dates

Joes Road Fishery

We know the weed has got out of control again and are actively doing something about it. However the fish are thriving very well within it and the natural food it brings is fantastic for fish growth and small fish survival.

Our bailiffs have been asking for help, and if they had enough to get together at one time, would have done so already. However help is sporadic so we now have a hit hard approach for next weekend.
We will be working on the water from Thursday evening on the 13th June until Saturday 15th June at around mid day. The water will be closed for this period. 

Bailiffs will be in attendance night and day to do works.

We have a small team organised with equipment to do both weed removal and after care for the water.
