We have now negotiated an extension to our fishing at Beale Park

lake to allow us to continue fishing. The extension will run from

the 1st of April  until the 15th of June. Fishing will be restricted

to week days only with no fishing on Saturdays or Sundays.

The fishing times will be as normal, as per the permit. There will

be wild swimming taking place on Monday mornings 8am to 12am

and Wednesday evenings 5pm to 8pm so please try and avoid these periods.

Any activities being carried out by Hi5 water sports will have

priority so if there is Paddle boarding, Kayaking or swimming

being carried out please restrict your fishing to the far bank

swims to avoid confrontation.

Any member found to be abusive or confrontational with the Hi5 customers will face disciplinary committee.



For members that are interested in attending the club dinner/presentation night at the Calcot Golf Club on

the last Friday in May, (27/5/22) please contact

Alan Clark, Peter Budaji or John Ambrose.


We would like to remind all our members that only DRY nets,

weigh slings, unhooking matts can be brought onto our RFC


There are reports of local fisheries suffering fish deaths as a

result of disease or virus spreading between fisheries.

Nets, weigh slings, unhooking matts should be bone dry. Before

being brought onto any RFC fisheries.

Preferably dried outside by the ultraviolet rays of sun, which is

the best method for killing off all bacteria, germs etc.

Thank you for your cooperation understanding.
