Welcome To Burton Mutual Angling Association

Horseshoe Meadow - River Dove

Carpark access is currently NOT available from Station Road in Rolleston at the old carpark number 4.

Despite it looking like we have lost access, all members should be aware that this is not the case, at present we have nowhere for carparking however down the access lane. You are free to use the lane for pedestrian access however.

Once we have been able to secure carparking again we will advise of the new arrangements.




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.

All the cost is covered by your permit unless you wish to hire a boat - you would have to pay separately for boat hire.
