Gunthorpe Road Upgrade Complete ready for the closed season - before and after pictures below

The first phase of the road improvements at Gunthorpe is now complete ready for the start of the closed season, the Land owner was very impressed with the wok - his comments are: "... I have looked over the work and feel it is a big step on from what has previously been done in the past. The key going forward will be regular maintenance in certain prone wet areas that may suffer from stone movement. Good engineering ideas to try and protect the road from flooding. I think some areas that show a little movement would benefit from a finer top surface but give it time to settle and dry before carrying out further addition of stone I would suggest. Many thanks for the confirmation of quality imported materials for a clear purpose-exactly where we want to be. Hope all goes well with your further works this spring."



Great News for Juniors

The committee have decided to make under 16 membership free to encourage more juniors to get out on the banks. They will still need to be registered with the club for insurance purposes and they will receive a membership card. 16 - 18 year old's will cost £10 and can fish without supervision as long as the club receives written permission from a parent or guardian.

VERY IMPORTANT KHV NOTICE- ITS NOW AT COTGRAVE!!!

All landing nets, weigh slings, carp sacks etc. must be dry before being placed in to the water, preferably via sunlight. Please also be aware that damp stink bags can also carry the disease. It will be treated as a very serious offence should this restriction be broken due to the danger presented to the health of our fish stock. Thank you for your understanding, hopefully we will be back to normality in the near future.
Koi herpesvirus (KHV) is a disease that affects all varieties of carp, is highly contagious and may cause up to 100% mortality.

Flood Updates

See the Noticeboard for the latest information:
Update 16/1/16: the river has gone down a lot and the lakes are not as flooded but you still can't drive all round them.
Thrumpton:
Update 18/1/16:River is still high, cannot see any of the gravel beach yet. Anyone wishing to fish above the booms forget it. there is no access under the bridges for another two weeks. they are under the process of making a new road under one of the arches. the other two have been blocked off. The wet grass is still a problem so parking just off the road can be a real problem, best to walk from the village.
Gunthorpe:
update 19/1/16: water levels receding, access around left hand side of Dollar O.K. to drive on, but right track very soft and not safe to be used until dried out a bit more.
Winthorpe:
update 22/1/16:Quick update regarding winthorpe. I can't see the Trent bank being open anytime soon as its like a bog and absolutely sodden wet through. No ice on the lake but the water is still up slightly - you can park by the wooden gate which is still locked for now
Cromwell:
DO NOT PARK ON THE GRASS
No vehicles to be taken on the grass areas at Cromwell as now too wet. Park in the car park.
Stoke:
update 19/1/16:water level falling rapidly, looks very inviting? caution must be taken when parking on soft grass verges

Praise for Bingham Pond Working Parties

A veteran Bingham Angler has sent in the following praise for the recent work carried out there: "Hi I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and congratulate you for the work that has been done on Bingham pond I've been fishing it for around 10 years and have witnessed how bad it has become. Seeing your work clearing the trees and rubbish has made the pond look so much better and has made a massive difference. I am sure once all your work is done it will be an amazing pond again. Yours thankfully Adam Donze" Its nice to know you are making a big difference to our waters.. keep it up :-).

Litter at the Gunthorpe Complex
