COVID-19 UPDATE – Fishing set to resume on some Belper waters

The club is delighted to announce that fishing will be allowed on our waters for the first time since the national “lockdown” measures were imposed in response to the worsening outbreak of COVID-19. All of our waters have been closed to angling activity since March 24th, and the club has been monitoring Government & Angling Trust guidance ever since. Fishing will once again be allowed on some of our waters very soon.

Please visit our COVID-19 Updates page for further details.
