Welcome To Burton Mutual Angling Association

Low water levels/Low oxygen content - Rivers

Several members have contacted the club with concerns over the low oxygen content/water level on our Rivers.

I am aware that some clubs have introduced River fishing bans until the drought ends.

BMAA feel that we have a trustworthy membership and we do not want to impose any bans or restrictions on your fishing unless we feel it absolutely necessary.

As such we ask all of our members to carefully consider any fishing on the Rivers during the current conditions, we must all consider the fish and our actions upon them. If you wish to leave the Rivers alone until after the Heatwave has finished, then I applaud your actions.

If you do wish to fish the Rivers and feel that you are able to deal with any fish being safely returned, then that’s your choice.

Please do however ensure that fish such as barbel are taken out of the water for the absolute minimum period, do you really need a photo? etc.

Fish should be retained in a net or by hand until they are strong enough to powerfully swim away from you, this may take a while and should be carefully undertaken to ensure the fishes welfare and the fishing for other members.

Please take care and enjoy your fishing either on the Rivers or maybe on the Stillwater’s until after the weather breaks.

BMAA

 

 

River Trent - Event 3/4th August

Dear Fishing Club,

I am writing to inform you of a charity event taking place on the River Trent on the 3rd/4th of August 2018.  We are bringing a number of stand up paddle boarders down the Trent from Shugborough Hall to Nottingham Trent Bridge.  They will be travelling past your fishing club within approximately a one-hour window.  They set off from Shugboruough Hall at 9am on Friday the 3rd to finish overnight and Barton-Upon-Trent carries on the 4th to Nottingham Trent Bridge setting off between 8-9am.  If you would like to know the estimated window please let us know.

We have put in place strict guidelines for avoiding fishing lines and disturbance and made it clear that any infractions of the rules will not be tolerated.

Our aim is to cause you no disturbance at all and pass by very quietly.  We appreciate your members will have paid to have the right to a quiet fishing spot and we respect that.

We are coarse and sea anglers ourselves and now actually fish from angler specific stand up paddle boards which we are more than happy to come and talk to you about if any of your members would be interested.

The event is licenced by the Canal and River Trust and insured by British Canoeing.  We hope this will become an annual event only and we want to support you by reinforcing the areas of the River Trent that are NOT public access to discourage leisure paddlers.

 

 

Lost - Chair at Marston Old Lane

One of our members has reported losing a fold up chair from the car park at the end of Marston Old Lane on Sunday.

It’s got his friends name – phillip james – written on the back.

If anybody has found it please contact Roy Sutton on 07595 631472 so that we can arrange to get it returned.

Thanks.
