IMPORTANT NOTICE

Requirement for Permit to Fish for the start of the 2017/18 river season.

Owing to the unprecedented demand from members seeking to fish the river Wye at Stacklands and in order to regulate the number of anglers allowed to fish at this particular venue on any one day, the "Permit" system will be reinstated from the start of the 2017 season on the 16th June to the end of September. There will be no charge for permits, however members will be required to book in advance if they wish to fish at Stacklands. A maximum of 10 permits will be issued for any one day. Members can reserve a place by calling the BAA office in advance on 01562 882116. Permits can either be posted out or sent by email. Members will be required to show the permit, in addition to their BAA membership, if requested to by any duly authorised person.

SatNav note: if you travel from the midlands using a satnav it will direct you off the M50 at J3 and send you cross country to Kings Caple. To use the alternative route above ignore your satnav and continue on the M50 to the Ross area. Your satnav should then take you the alternative route detailed above.

NIGHT FISHING IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN.

VEHICLES MUST ONLY BE PARKED IN THE DESIGNATED AREA ALONGSIDE THE FISHING HUT AND MUST NOT BE DRIVEN ACROSS THE FIELDS.

BAA PARKING:- Enter the field through the gate and drive alongside the right hand edge of the field towards the fishing hut. DO NOT DRIVE ACROSS THE FIELD AND PARK ON THE RIVER BANK.

Baits & ground-bait: The EA has granted the BAA a dispensation from the ban on the use of maggots, ground-bait and feeders on the Wye. Therefore you can use baits, ground-bait and feeders as you would on our other river fisheries such as those on the Severn. The EA dispensation is for a year only which will need to be re-applied for and granted annually.

The Stacklands Fishery has previously been a salmon only venue and has not been subject to anglers using large amounts of ground-bait. Please be aware of this when fishing and use ground-bait in quantities that are appropriate for the venue.
