THE RIVER KENN IS NOW CLOSED FOR FISHING UNTIL 16TH JUNE.
It has been a busy season for the Club on the River Kenn.Between March and June last year we installed nearly 40 fishing stations after levelling the bank.
We carried out major tree surgery as well as pruning, reed cutting, mowing and clearing weed. We will soon be on the bank again doing maintenance and getting everything in order for 16th June.
2 big Charity Matches were organised and held on the river which also attracted England International Des Shipp.
During the winter the level of the Kenn was kept slighly higher than normal between Dec and March after negotiating with the Environment Agency.
There have been some notable catches reported along with photographs…….
Bream 8lb plus, Tench 6lb plus, Roach 3lb plus as well as several over 2lbs, Perch 3lb plus, Hybrid 4lb plus, Chub up to 5lbs, Double figure Pike, Rainbow trout up to 4lbs (escapee’s).
The Officers and Committee have met regularly and continue to invest in the river for the benefit of all members. None of the Officers or Committee expect or receive any honararium.
We have decided to increase a couple of the Membership categories from 1st April. Adult Full Season from £20 to £25, Senior Citizen Full Season no change remaining at £15, Disabled Full Season no change at £15, Junior Full Season remains Free. Day Ticket increases from £5 to £6. This is the first increase for many years and we believe still offers good value.
Our AGM is on Thursday 28th April at 19:00 in the Blue Flame Nailsea BS48 4DE.
Thank you to everyone who supported us during the year.
Ivan Currie, Secretary
