Coronavirus Update

Following the country wide restrictions which have been introduced due to Coronavirus, and the fact that there is now emerging clarity that fishing is not among the approved forms of daily exercise (and the associated essential travel) it is with regret that the Committee of Dorchester Fishing Club have decided that Members must not visit the Club waters during the current period of lockdown. This means that the season will not open as usual on the 1st April and will remain closed until at least the 15th April.

We believe that our position is in line with other member clubs, but the situation will remain under review and we will advise further as and when it is appropriate to do so.

It is a great pity that we will not be able to enjoy the season opening on the usual way, particularly as our rivers have been looking so good with all the springs fully recharged over the winter, but for now out frustrations must prevail for the sake of the greater good that we do by staying at home.

Best wishes to you all
