2019/20 River Coarse Fishing Season Now Closed!

Milford top weir

All members & day ticket anglers should be aware that the annual river close season is now in force, from midnight March 14th until June 16th.

The only way you can now fish our stretch of the Derbyshire Derwent is to fly fish for the trout.  Local byelaws apply.

Of course, our members can still coarse fish Wyver Lane Pond and our stretch of the Erewash Canal whilst the rivers are closed, for our stocks of carp, silver fish, bream & tench.

Also, don’t forget to renew your EA Rod Licence, which may expire during the close season. It is a condition of fishing club waters that all anglers are in posession of a valid rod licence.
