Due to the continued warm spell would all anglers please note that Pike fishing on Anglezarke is now suspended. This is necessary measure to protect the pike stocks during this period.
In light of the current situation, the Committee have agreed that the AGM (scheduled for Tuesday 12 May) will be cancelled.
Once the situation we all currently face has eased, an announcement will be made regarding the re-scheduling of it.
We're thankful to member Howard Lloyd, for letting us share with you this picture of a lovely common carp which he caught on the Three Pools. Although not a large fish, it's certainly a nice looking specimen, and shows that you never really know what you'll catch next on the drains!!
I am delighted to be able to report that following very positive negotiations with Wigan & District Angling Association, we have agreed that the Rufford Canal will be fishable by members of both Associations along it entire length.
Please note that any bait restrictions on each of the Associations length of the canal will still apply and matches must be booked via the appropriate match secretary of the controlling Association.
We believe that this is a very positive step for the anglers of both Associations.
For clarity I have detailed the controlling Associations length of the Rufford Canal below:
Wigan AA control between bridges 1 to 7
Southport DAA control between bridges 7 to 12, which is the swing bridge at Tarleton
What a great start to the new year for Jack Lloyd, his first double figure pike of 2016 from the drains, we are sure there will be many more to come for Jack!
