Alderfen Fisheries site rules.

Please note that these rules are not designed to spoil your enjoyment, or to stop you catching fish. They are simply in place to protect the welfare of the fish and the natural environment of the lakes and their surroundings. We want you to come and enjoy yourselves!

GENERAL RULES.

Leave no litter. Vehicles must keep to the hard-standing. All anglers must fish from the swims we’ve provided, don’t damage the bank side vegetation- we’ve planted thousands of young trees in the last few years. Due to a few bad apples, we have banned non-angling visitors, although partners are welcome. You may also bring your dog if it is kept under control Please clean up after it.

Toilets are provided, please use them.

Many of our fish are worth a photo. Please make sure you return them to the water as quickly as possible. Please note no bright lamps when night fishing. Head torches only.

If you see any blatant rule breaking or anti social behaviour on site please contact the management -tel. 07759936455
