Branston Water Park - Fishery SHUT

We have made the decision to shut Branston water Park for fishing from 8am on Friday 19th May until 8am on Friday 16th June.

This decision has been made after taking advise from both the EA and several leading fishery managers, this is following a situation with some carp being caught with clear evidence of Bacterial damage, this appears as sores on their flanks. We have not suffered the loss of any fish from this issue.

We are advised that a period of two weeks of supplementary feeing should be undertaken to assist the fish with the condition, and that not allowing fishing will lessen stress on the fish.

Equally we have been advised that any anglers catching such fish should ensure that any damage should be treated with "carp care" products and that the fish should be returned as quickly as possible to the water to eliminate additional stress. Such fish should not be retained in sacks/retainers.

We are also purchasing dip tanks for treatment of all landing nets, unhooking mats and Weigh slings, these will be in place with signage prior to the re-opening on the 16th June.

We are sorry to have to shut the fishery but feel that the health of the fish is of paramount importance.

Fences - River Dove at Tutbury

The farmer at Tutbury has reported that somebody has cut the fence adjacent to the River dove on the upstream "Tutbury bank" from the Hatton/Tutbury road bridge to Tutbury weir stretch.

Whilst is not known whether the fence was cut by an angler or not, we must ensure that we do not undertake any cutting of fences under ANY circumstances.If any member has information regarding this issue please inform the committee.
