Well yesterday saw some highly productive work carried out on the Dove, safe to say we have some cracking swims now available. Even more encouraging was the amount of Barbel we witnessed of which some were real quality fish. Completing the work party gains the member early access to the river Dove once the season starts on the 16th June, all other members must wait until 1st July to fish it.
In addition new rules for all sections of the River Dove were voted in at the last AGM and are as follows;
No coarse anglers allowed on the river in the close season.
Trout Fly fishing allowed from 18th March to 7th October 2017.
Work party members only for the first two weeks of the season.
Members without a work party ticket allowed to fish from 1st July 2017.
Please note no visiting the river prior to the start of the season.
Fishing sessions from first light to 12.30am, all anglers must be off the farm land by 1.00am.
Strictly no camping on the banks between sessions.
Failure to comply with Society's rules or behaving in an inappropriate manner will
result in loss of membership.
