As a result of the past few weeks rain the ground water is at such a level that it is both un safe and not possible to work in the main river, we have achieved a great deal on the various carriers and Piddle beats and I massively thank all who have helped and worked so hard…
The rest of this week’s work parties are now cancelled until further notice, as soon as the levels are good for us to get in the river again I will let you all know..
The Club is a private one, founded in 1877, of approximately sixty-four members and six Town Rod subscribers. The Club’s waters consist of about 12 miles of wild brown trout & grayling fishing in the main River Frome, River Cerne and River Piddle, together with attendant carriers and side streams. The waters extend both above and below the town of Dorchester and the Club employs a part-time keeper.
If you see any fishing, netting or trapping you think is illegal, please don’t tackle it yourself.
