Coarse Fishing

Coarse fishing at Trimpley commences on June 16th 2022
Coarse Fishing Trimpley

The reservoir is well stocked with Bream, Perch, Roach, Chub, etc.

Coarse fishing commences in June when the reservoir becomes a mixed fishery, for game and coarse anglers.

The coarse angling section has a thriving match section who fish alternate Sundays, with match-winning weights sometimes in excess of 100lbs.

A large head of coarse fish exists that has never been stocked, but continue to thrive in the unique environment the reservoir provides.

Coarse angling contest dates will commence on June 19th 2022 and will be held fortnightly on Sundays as listed in the membership diary.


  1. Contests shall be open to all permit holders of all classes. Guests holding day permits are allowed to fish contests other than the “Fur and Feather”.
  2. No ground bait of any description is permitted. Loose feeding, cage feeders and open-ended feeders are permitted.  Bloodworm and jokers are also banned.
  3. All contests shall be fished from the bank and within an imaginary line halfway between the anglers.
  4. No competitor shall leave his/her peg at any time during the course of the match other than to answer  the call of nature and then he/she must not leave his baited hook in the water. NOTE: toilet facilities are available
  5. A competitor may use only one rod and line at any one time but may have other rods and tackles assembled for use provided such other tackles are not baited. On the tackle in use the angler must not have more than one single hook. No treble or double hooks of any kind are permitted.  No live or dead fish, frogs, spinning baits or artificial lures may be used in coarse fishing contests.
  6. Before the starting signal no competitor must on any account feed the swim but will be allowed to wet a line, test the float and plumb the depth, but not by plumbing it with a feeder.  The competitor will also be allowed to clear his/her fishing ground of obstructions and position keep nets in the water.  Competitors must retain all fish in keep nets which comply with the relevant EA bye laws. Competitors must take every practicable step to keep their fish alive and, after weighing them, must ensure their careful return to the water.   If for any reason fish are seen to be in distress a competitor or match official has the right to demand that they be weighed immediately and returned to the water during the course of the match.  Game fish must not be retained in keep nets.  Dead or injured fish must be removed from the water and disposed of in the bins by the fishing lodge.
  7. Coarse fish only will be weighed in.
  8. Any guest fishing any contest shall be subject to these rules and the member bringing the guest shall be held responsible for ensuring the guest has an EA licence and a Trimpley day permit and will also be responsible for the guest’s actions.
  9. A  member who signs in a guest must accompany the guest.
    A guest angler may only take part in one contest per season.  To take part in more contests the guest   has to become a member.
  1. A competitor must cease fishing at the finishing signal.  If playing a fish hooked before the signal is given, no more than fifteen minutes will be permitted after the finishing signal to land the fish.
  2. Competitors are responsible for ensuring their pegs are clear of litter and no competitor may have his/her catch weighed in who has litter lying on the banks of his/her swim. No meat tins or sweetcorn tins or similar tinned baits may be brought onto the reservoir site in tins.
  3. All the foregoing rules are subject to the byelaws of the EA in whose area the competition is being fished.
  4. Any angler proved to have been in contravention of these rules will be disqualified and reported to the Disciplinary Committee.
  5. Any topic not covered by any rule shall be dealt with by the Committee at the time if enough of the committee members (minimum three) are available. If not, any decision shall be made at a later date.
  6. No rocks or weights may be placed inside keep nets. They may be attached to the outside of nets.
  7. No more than 25 Bream and no more than 50lb weight of all fish may be kept in any one keep net. Excesses over these limits in a keep net will not count in the weigh-in, but any excess may be kept in additional keep nets and will then count in the weigh-in.
