Amendment to the Waters Guide – Fairoaks Pools is no longer closed during April.

Due to the forest location of the water, stoves may be used at Fairoak Pools except in very dry weather conditions. Note:

Due to the extremely dry spring, the Forestry Commission have told us that temporarily, stoves are not to be used until further notice.

Contractors, (Clixbys), will be filling water bowsers from the fishing pools. They will try to work around us and fill up where no one is fishing, but if they are really busy, they may need to put a hose in near fisherman.

Please remember that the barrier must be kept closed and locked at all times.
