Catfish 72lb moved to main lake in 2010

Welcome to Crow Green Fishery: The Home of Some of the Largest Catfish in England

WE ARE PLEASED TO SAY THAT ALL IS WELL AT THE FISHERY AND DESPITE RUMORS WE DO NOT HAVE KHV AND HAVE LOST NO FISH. WE WILL RE-OPEN WITH RESTRICTED HOURS FOR REGULAR ANGLERS AND BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.  This is so that we can control the correct dipping of nets, mats, weigh slings and cradles. We are going to allow bookings for 12/24/36 hour sessions.. The gates will open for an hour on FRIDAY 19TH SEPTEMBER at 6pm for night fishing and will open at 7am (again for an hour) to allow anglers to leave/arrive.  THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THESE RULES. If anglers do not respect these rules and put the welfare of the fish first they will be asked to leave and  not be welcome back!!  The same hours will apply for Saturday/Sunday and we will remain closed during the week until further notice.
We have cancelled all remaining matches and we are not at present accepting any match bookings.
Everyone can do their bit and stop this and other viruses from spreading by ensuring their nets, mats etc are bone dry.  Viruses cannot live on dry surfaces.  So please arrive with dry equipment and place all items into the dip tanks provided and leave to soak for a minimum of 15 minutes as recommended by CEFAS/EA

The fish are in good health and are not going hungry as we have been feeding the lake on a daily basis with our feed bait – crab and garlic
