Lockwood end of season Boat Promotion.
From the 1st to 30th September.
Book one boat and two full day permits and get the boat FREE.
All BOATS MUST BE BOOKED IN ADVANCE.
With effect from the 21st of September anglers will no longer be allowed to fish from the boat jetty or from the fence in front of the fishing lodge. This is as a result of the total disregard showing by some anglers to other angler’s safety.
The rule was that only one angler was allowed to fish from the jetty and if any anglers were loading or unloading boats fishing would stop. In recent weeks we have had three sometimes four fishing from the jetty. The boat jetty will now remain out of bounds until further notice.
