Someone on Hythe residents Facebook group has posted they have a black leather notebook along canal that looks like belongs to a fishing bailiff... can you spread the word? Ie via Paul Goss

Not too sure about fishing being taken. Done a few 24hr sessions and had loads of decent sized ones. Biggest 19lb
Loads of low doubles.
The fish last season where long and skinny with parasites all over. This Season the fish seem to be a lot deeper bodied
Definitely put weight on

Rejoined after the lockdown, went excitedly to fish overnight at Beachborough, not a single bite in 24hrs. It was very hot, so expected to see a lot on the surface saw 2! Wonder if the place has had a visit and been emptied? First time ive blanked there in 3 years! Has it been bombarded with goundbait? 6 others blanked during the same 24hrs. Earlier thread mentioned using a fish finder to check stock. A good idea if someone got one. Also well done to young toby for jumping in and saving the duck tangled in lost tackle, a credit to the club.

Walked along canal cannot belive how overgrown and neglected the section along from the lightrailway to west hythe is hardly any swims at all and most are complety overgrown

Well I had a couple of 10lb carp the other evening, so there are fish in there still.

Has anyone thought to run a fishfinder across Beachborough?
There are all sorts of theories as to why it isn't fishing well (from predation, theft, water issues etc.) it would surely be a sensible first step to see if the fish are still there?
Whilst I cant see a couple of cormorants eating 15lb carp I don't see how nets would take out all the small fish either - something is odd but knowing if the fish are there would be a bit of certainty we don't currently have

Hi guys, i am very keen to fish the stretch from seabrook through to west hythe. I am a carp fisherman and would be targetting the carp in the canal. Is there an area you would recommend on that stretch, im based in Ashford so sont know the stretch particularly well, so wasnt sure on where i can park to make my way onto the stretch. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. To confirm it is buy a ticket on the bank, is that correct

Thanks again

Not sure how much blame to attach to cormorants. It often seems to me that they are deemed to be responsible for poor fishing success.

1lb a day they eat apparently (according to the scare stories in the angling press). So 2 cormorants, assuming they stayed put (which they don't) would eat 700odd lb of fish a year. Seems a lot but I wonder how many lbs a year of fish grow naturally in these lakes.

Anyway, it would be nice to hear some recent success storys for Beechborough, I find it easier to fish when I know that I'm not wasting time.

Hi Jeremy. I too am struggling on Beechborough this season. I was wondering about the 2 Cormorants, constantly present at both lakes. Could they be a large part of the problem? Especially now a larger part of the main lake are now exposed. After the fantastic work being done to remove the lilles I though the fishing would improve but not for me either😥

How's beechborough fishing this year? I've been a few times and had nothing but a 3lb bream. Is it me or the venue?
MC wrote on 8th July 2020 at 9:19 pm:
has the ban been lifted down at Palmarsh? Signs still up but quite a few angling including the guy near herons gate who lives right opposite.

I understand that the Angling Trust have updated their Covid guidelines - and are no longer discouraging the use of keepnets
Jeremy wrote on 16th June 2020 at 6:01 pm:
Just out of interest, does anyone know why keepnets are banned under covid rules? Im not sure they could be an infection hazard. Fair enough if there is another reason. I do find that bream fishing suffers when a keepnet cannot be used.

Hi I was fishing the Canal 3 weeks ago this sunday by Stade St Bridge. Unfortunately got some bad news about my dear Mum and left leaving a green delkim txi on a nd bank stick either bank side or road side. I know its a long shot, but just thought I'd put it out there. If anyone found it or knows anyone who did they can contact me at it would be much appreciated.

Is it ok to fish at the disabled swims at botolph bridge bottom of lymnpe hill as there was people fishing there last night and when i asked them if fishing is allowed they said they had been given permission of paul the balliff yet all signs are still in place stating no fishing

Can you still park in the field respecting farmers wishes between the dam & Aldergate lane, used to be able to but no mention of it in this year's handbook ?

Welcome the chat open again, any suggestions we will listen to. But stupid comments will be ignored and deleted.

Hi Colin. There are no yellow lines as such beside the bridge, but I think you will find that there is sufficient parking space beside the bridge for you
COLIN wrote on 29th August 2019 at 1:40 pm:
Being disabled is it possible to fish the Giggers Green section of the canal? Having a disable parking permit is there any yellow line area that I might use. My thanks in advance.

Hi Sophie, I’m afraid we don’t do day passes for Beachborough. You have to be a member or a guest of a member. For this the member has to be with you and it will cost the member £5. As a guest you can’t night fish only dawn til dusk. Hope this helps.
Sophie wrote on 21st August 2019 at 7:55 pm:
Hi, wondering if anyone can help me?
How much is it for a day pass at Beachborough?
