The PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) therapy match was a resounding success and the guys will be back to visit us again soon.
The Warren will be open for pike fishing from 06 November 2014 from 07.00 to 11.00 hours entry (contact bailiff outside these hours) Please remember no lure fishing is allowed, dead baits only.
The Warren Fishery is now back open to day-tickets. However, strict restrictions will be in place, all anglers will have to dip their nets and any other textile thing that will come into contact with the fish. Keepnets will NOT be allowed. The gates will be open from 7 am to 11 am for entry and will close at sunset or the bailiffs whistle. Anglers will be told on entry when the lake will be closing that day. Anyone wishing to gain entry outside these times will have to phone the bailiff and entry will be at the bailiff’s discretion. Anyone breaking these rules will be ejected. Anyone wishing to vacate before the gates are opened at the end of the day will need to contact the bailiff. Apologies if this seems strict, but we need to protect our water.
From 18.45 to 19.15 on the second Monday of every month (barring bank hols), i.e. the scheduled committee meetings; we are available to listen to any member or season ticket’s issues (strictly time limited and on a first come first served basis).
The Warren Fishery comprises of three very different lakes which can be fished on a day ticket, season ticket, or as a member. We also have a fourth lake for members and season ticket holders only.
The complex is based on mature ex-gravel workings, so the banks are firm and generally well-drained, providing easy access for all. We also have specific swims prioritised for wheelchair-bound anglers – with parking right behind the swim in some cases.
We’re working hard to improve the fishery, both in terms of fish stocks and the general environment. For instance, we have a fish stocking programme, and we also have a planting programme for trees, water plants, etc. Our aim is to provide a fishery where it’s ‘nice to be’ even if we don’t catch every trip.
Why not come and visit the fishery? We welcome new anglers and there’s always someone around to talk to. There are signs to point you in the right direction, and we even have a sign to tell you which bailiff is on duty. You might be pleasantly surprised……
We have plenty of car parking, and toilet facilities on site.
The Warren Fishery is run by Anglers for Anglers. We are a not for profit organisation, with every penny going back into the fishery. The entire Management of the Fishery is carried out by volunteers, only the 3 Bailiffs are paid employees.
