Fish Stock Illegal Fishing
After several reports from members regarding poachers down at the lake I spoke to Lee from the EA who does the patrol's around the lake. I asked if he was still patrolling the lake which he told me they were, he said he would check the telephone reports to see if members are still reporting these incidents.

He called me last week and stressed that not a lot of calls have come in he also stressed without the calls coming in they will have to stop the patrols
To help Lee and his team catch these people I cannot stress how important it is that you report these people by phoning the EA.

Don't Phone a Friend, Don't Phone a Committee Member,
Phone The EA. 
 Telephone number 0800 80 70 60

Lee also stressed that you must phone the police on 101
quoting you are reporting the Theft Of Fishing Rights






Fish Theft
At the moment I'm receiving a lot of phone calls regarding fish being stolen from the lake.
This seems to be occurring between 18:00 & 22:00 on a daily basis, I will be speaking to the relevant authorities regarding this.

These people are not members of the fishing club and need to be stopped we need members to start patrolling the lake, if we are to stop the theft of fish.
