New restrictions at Whitehouse Farm

The owner of Whitehouse Farm has asked us to apply the following restrictions with immediate effect:

Junior members (aged under 16) can no longer fish the lake unless accompanied by an adult member aged 18+.

No fishing allowed after dusk (30 minutes after sunset).

An amount of litter has also been picked up at Whitehouse Farm, anybody caught littering will be banned for life.

These new restrictions will be reviewed at the committee meeting on 1st March and finalised before the new season starts on 1st April.  Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Our first reported thirty of 2017

Pleased to say Howells has done its first 30 of the year over the weekend, still 2 months or more until spawning , we should see a few more over that time , most fish that are coming out are over 20lb with a lot of upper 20’s all looking nice.


Rob Kidd with the Common known as Breezeblock at 30lb 6oz.

Hopefully the thirties in Totham Pit and Slough House Farm will now follow suit and put in an appearance soon…

An afternoon session at Slough House West

Chelmer & Blackwater Close Season

Members of Maldon AS, Chelmsford AA, Kelvedon DAA, Colchester APS and day ticket anglers are reminded that the last day of fishing on the Chelmer & Blackwater river/canal was Tuesday 14th March.  The Environment Agency will be enforcing the traditional 3 month close season between the 15th March and 15th June 2017 on the entire river/canal network.

Fortunately 16 of our stillwaters remain open between the 15th March and 15th June so MAS members (who have rejoined for the 2017-18 season) will not have to hang up their rods for 3 months.

Portaloo switch over

Good news, the shiny new portaloos have been delivered to Slough House Farm and Howells and are ready to use.


Thank you to Ryan for sorting these out for us.

Concessionary match attendance

Following some confusion, even amongst the committee, I am now able to confirm that all competitors at Keith’s concessionary matches must hold a current concessionary  membership.  An alternative name for the Over Sixties Trophy is being considered.
