NEW WATERS

 
Members attending recent meetings will be aware the society has taken on two new waters, namely Meadowfields pool at Barlaston and the River Trent in the same area. 
 
We are pleased to announce that following the installation of stiles along the bank the river is now open for fishing to members. Nearest postcode is ST12 9HG, access is on foot by way of Meadowfields farm gates next to Heyfields nursing home, all gates must be closed on entry and exit.
Follow the Fenton signs and keep to the riverbank, much of the fishery is affected by overhead power cables but the lower half is fishable down to lakeside golf course.
 
Known species include chub, perch, pike, dace and some very nice brown trout along with the odd grayling, a few small barbel have also been caught over the years. Fishing is strictly limited to dawn until dusk, members must keep to the riverbank, no fishing within 30 metres of overhead power cables
 
Meadowfields pool is not open for fishing until further notice but is expected to be added to next year’s membership card. Both venues will be open to all grades of membership. 
 
Parking for both venues is available on Meadowfields pool car park or on the roadside.
