by Clevedon FWAC on

Thank you to the Environment Agency for supplying 3500 fish which were released in the River Kenn on Tuesday 11th December 2017.
The fish were a mixture of roach, bream and tench, all around 3” to 4”. Here are some photos which were taken by Bob Newton.

Hi Anglers!

Tight Lines,

A fresh start

by Clevedon FWAC on

Good news!

As from the start of the season, all juniors can fish the river for free!
With reduced membership prices for both seniors and day tickets.

If you’re not already aware, Clevedon FWAC no longer leases Acorn Paddock Lake so any enquiries should be made direct with Acorn Fishery.

With the river fishing so well up to the end of the season, we are expecting good catches.

Dave Fowler

It is much regret that the club is mourning the lost a valuable member – Dave Fowler.

He passed away on the 22nd April 2014 after quite a long illness. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

RIP Dave

Red Letter Day – The last day of the season

by Clevedon FWAC on

The River Kenn showed two of the club members just what it could produce when conditions are right.

To the left is Simon Carvello with a huge net full of roach caught from Peg 98 above Kenn Road.
He did not have any scales but we estimate 45-50lb of roach. Not one of them weighed less than 4oz.
Caught on single and double red maggot.

On the right, Scott Smallwood’s tench brace – a truly fantastic day fishing for the pair of anglers.

Good News!

November 2012 also saw the introduction of over 2000 roach in the River Kenn.

This made a small impact in the fishing, with roach up to 1/2 a pound being caught in numbers.

We have not seen this in a few years so may it continue!

Here are some photos:

Good news!

We now have another tackle shop in the area and they have agreed on allowing anyone with a Clevedon Fishing license to have 5% off!

It is situated at the boatyard in Portishead marina they stock all sea and coarse fishing tackle.

Go down and have a look (don’t forget your Clevedon license). This is just another good reason to get a Clevedon tab now and support your club.

With lots of fishing venues and tackle shops offering a good discount in the area, it will pay for the cost of a license over the year and you get to fish some very good venues.
