Sampford Ponds Closure notice Midnight 28th May for one week

In line with our further improvements Sampford Ponds will be closed for the period 1 week from midnight 28th May 2024.

We are repairing swims & footpaths there will also be a specialist contractor conducting a tree survey on the venue to identify problems and remove them.

Thanks for bearing with us hopefully you will be able to enjoy the improved venue in due course.

We have no alternative but to do these works now due to water logging of the venue during the winter periods. Hopefully we can alleviate some of these issues too and generally make the venue more pleasant to fish all year round!!

We are delighted to report that our members have taken notice of the carp spawning on the Exeter Canal. We were pleased to see that rather than fishing for them members were seen watching events unfold with not a fishing rod in sight. It is a sight to behold and especially pleasing to see that our members are very capable of doing the right thing without your association having to do anything other than offer advice.

Great work guys we do appreciate your support with these issues!!

So as an update from our previous post. The carp are spawning on a lot of our venues. If you have fish actively spawning in your swim it is considered highly unethical to actively pursue them. Our team are busy advising people & we know our head bailiff has been active today on the canal offering best practice and advice. We do not have the manpower to police all of our waters all of the time & you can if you see someone acting irresponsibly educate them too.

This is your club and we welcome your support in managing your fisheries & fishing ethically.
