WATER LEVELS: Due to serious drought in the region we have already closed the doughnut and Jacobs creek along with pegs 22 to 28 on the Big Lake, for fish and angler safety. The Traditional Lake has now re-opened due to raised water levels but still please fish with care.  Match lake 1 is open for day anglers but pegs 16 to 19 are closed for NIGHT FISHING, all other night fishing pegs are still available for bookings.  There are now 12 fishable swims on the Canal.

Anglers are advised to call before travelling long distances for updates on levels. Anglers must also ensure they pack their waders as they may have to walk into the water to catch and release fish. 

Thank you for your continued support - SWP Team

Countryside Code**

Responsible anglers show concern for the environment and wildlife, and should be on constant lookout for signs of water pollution.

Anglers should always follow the Country Code and take particular care to take their litter home.

Discarded hooks and line are a danger to wild life and extra care should be taken to dispose of them in a suitable place.
