Hi Everybody

We need to increase our Cormorants shooting licence in order to do this we need anglers to send in time and dates of cormorants sightings on the River Trent at Collingham. We need as much evidence, even photos of these sightings especially when a flock are together.

Collingham Angling Association would like to point out that the River Trent and Fleet is closed for any form of Angling from March 15th until 16th June.

The committee of Collingham Angling Association would like to express their appreciation in the prompt action of the Environment Agency in dealing with anglers fishing illegally on the River Trent during the closed season on 4th of May 2015.

Please note that the River Trent temporary membership is to stay the same at £5.00 per day collected by our bailiff on the day.

There is now a further temporary membership charge of £5.00 for overnight anglers who are camping out for the night

The success and growth of the association is a result of many hours of hard work and tireless effort by local anglers with a common interest.

The backbone being developed by residents in the village and surrounding area and support of local farmers.

The aim of our game is to promote fair angling and protect the country side, improve our skills to catch more fish and enjoy ourselves with fellow anglers !!

Our playground is the Tidal Trent below Cromwell weir and some of the local reclaimed gravel workings.

The Lower River Trent at Collingham was once the match angler’s Paradise. However, these days it’s the place to go if you want to bag up with barbel. Long gone are the days when you could “frame”with nets of roach and chub in a mixed bag or depend on the skimmers and slabs net. You can run a groove with a stick float and catch but not on a level playing field. Take your casters, maggots and hemp but boilies and pellets are a must.

Specimen hunters love the place, but so do plenty of ‘in the know’ pleasure anglers and match men, all of whom have barbel on the brain! Not to mention “catfish”

The Trent below Collingham weir is tidal and although the rise and fall of water twice per day is fairly slight and it is still noticeable but does vary in both time of the day and height. Viewing the fairly featureless stretch below the bubbling white water “the oven” of the weir pool is a daunting prospect. Think big and positive.
