River Mole (Cobham):
Members & Day ticket. (Closed during the 'Close' season) This fishery is underused and those who have fished it have had good results with Chub, Barbel, Roach, Bream and an unsubstantiated Zander. Fishing gossip: and unnamed angler allegedly landed a double figure BARBEL somewhere along the CALPAC stretch! During the month of August. I fished the Mole on Saturday the stretch between the bridges, caught a load of small Dace and Roach. The weeds were back so had to stamp down a lot of it to open a few swims.John Colman 24.6.2014 ken Menet has made a comment on the trip "Third River Mole": Having seen the work that has been done on the mole and car parking i can only congratulate all those that have put so much time and effort into this project. what more could you want than a night on manor the an early morning on a loverly stretch of river with easy access. really looking forward to getting to this venue. 8th August 11: Hi all.Fished the river mole for the first time since joining CALPAC this year and only the 3rd time on a river. I trotted about 10 different swims with maggots and bread. some really hard to fish cos of room and over grown with nettles but I had a great 6 hours catching tonnes of tiddlers and a few chub, biggest about 1.5lb. Scorching day, sweated buckets but will defo go again. Any info and tips would be appreciated. - kevin de-ritis NOTE: The more anglers that fish this venue the less overgrown it will become: - So lets have some more anglers using this venue. Fished the Mole on Sunday 16th June 2013 had a 4lb Pike. Was the first time fishing a river. The top end is very overgrown with nettles but away from the bridge the swims are more open: John Colman

Padworth (Kennet):
- Members only. (Closed during the 'Close' season)
Car Park The car park is now useable and should be used. KEY IS REQUIRED. Dean Hawkins 25-26th July 2015. Having visited Padworth this week with a guest, I was optimistic about our chances of landing a Barbel or two. This would have been made more possible though if I hadn't had a senior moment coupled with a bit of bad luck. Firstly having lost two Barbel and a decent Chub on the float, using a size 18 hook, I decided to late in the day a larger hook would have been more appropriate. Secondly I decided to finish the session on the bomb with a pellet for bait. 30 minutes later the rod arched round, the centrepin screamed and a large Barbel was on, but within 5 minutes I was snagged. I waded out to the snag and after following the line down for a couple of feet found the snag. After pulling hard for a while, the snag came free and revealed a 36 inch landing net, minus my fish. I  removed the broken net from the river, and preceded to remove lots of rigs that were obviously lost in the snag. I would like to reassure other anglers that the snag will not cause a any more problems in the steps swim, so I wish you all tight lines. Ps. Make sure you use appropriate size hooks though!  I finally managed to get my first Barbel 11lb 3oz, last night in the swim between the Perch swim and the Willow tree. So thanks for your advice.John Colman 24 Jun 2014
URGENT. BARBEL ARE SPAWNING at the Aquarium Please DO NOT FISH THESE SWIMS FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS
as from 26/06/2015
The Padworth Fishery has undergone extensive works during the close season, to ensure the anglers experience is more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. We would like to request, that members are sympathetic to the works that were carried out, and refrain from disturbing any 'new' plants in or around the swims. Members are permitted as usual, to trim any 'established' plants that may be inhibiting their fishing experience. since rejoining the club after a break of some 16 years I have to say that the Kennet fishing has been excellent with a pleasing amount of younger Barbel showing (in the 2lb to 4lb class) along with great access and a lack of litter well done to all involved. Best Regards Jim Perrin Dear Mr Milford-Scott  I just wanted to thank you for the helpful advice you gave during our phone conversation on Tuesday re parking/fishing at Padworth. Having not fished the stretch for over 15 years I visited it on Wednesday and was pleasantly surprised to find the venue in excellent shape with no litter anywhere and the swims comfortably accessible – The key and padlock worked a treat. The fishing had changed slightly with the old hemp and caster approach being replaced by pellet and paste but the Barbel were still obliging. I managed 5 fish to 8lb  - all of them in top condition and had a most enjoyable day.  Many thanks again – I won’t leave it as long for my next trip down there! Jim Perrin Mike Lee 7 / 8 August: Further to the recent fishery report in the CALPAC minutes I caught three barbel, 6-8, 8-8 and 9-8 from the same swim over two days earlier in the month, Caught at 10.30am, 6.15pm and 6.45am. All on hair rig with crab pellet on a bed of hemp put in with bait dropper. I did not see another angler on the fishery all the time I was there. Picture attached is of the biggest barbel I fished the Kennet at Padworth yesterday roving with a trotting rod and maggots. I caught lots of dace which came from every swim I tried. I also had a chub of about three pounds and had the hook pull out of two bigger fish one of which felt like a barbel. I also fished there about two weeks ago using the same methods and managed six chub to four pounds, a few dace and three trout! The barbel fishing seems hard at the moment but I have never known so many dace in my sixteen years of fishing Padworth. Terry Birks

River Arun: (Pulborough) Day ticket & Members. (Closed during the 'Close' season)

4/9/12 Trevor James. Ask anglers on the Arun to look out for long lines around the surface water outlet. As they walk downstream on our side look to the far bank for plastic drinks bottle on the surface if not moving with the flow it is tethered to the long line. Please remove and destroy, Dispose of at home not on the river bank - Please.

Hi Malcolm tried to fish the river yesterday. Forgot to ask for the padlock key but not a problem scaling the gate. I walked just about the whole stretch - the river looked great but there were deep nettles between 10 an 20 feet from the waters edge the length of the fishable bank. So it was impossible to fish. Shame the field isn't land managed as the grass made it very tricky to pull my trolley through (2 feet high in most places). Will definitely return and have a go in the autumn when hopefully the nettles have died back as there are some great bends and overhangs.  Saw quite a lot of fish movement there. Ended up going back to my local fishery in Lancing and had a 12lb mirror despite the blowy day so not all lost. kind regards Damia Having moved to worthing i have fished the Arun about five times in the last four weeks, I have never fished a tidal river before and didn't really know what to expect. I started of by fishing the few swims there are close to the bridge and have found these stretches very weedy but by trotting a float with maggots I've had lots of fun with small roach, small chub and gudgeon, Ive also tried trotting with other baits like corn,bread and meat without any success, but if anyone like fishing for eels I recommend using a feeder with maggots or meat as I've had them up to about 4lbs. The last couple of times I've been I've fished further down stream, the swims are much easier to fish and with overhanging trees and the river not being so weedy there seems to be a lot more potential for a larger chub (which i have seen) or one of those very hard to catch barbel that i know are there. from speaking to local people I've heard that in the winter the big pike are in abundance and big shoals of big bream are there if you can locate them so might be worth giving it a try. I will be there again on the 28th oct with two other members and will be fishing the far end of the fishery looking for those specimen fish we know are there, report to follow. Ken Menet. 27/7/12 I went to visit the CALPAC stretch of the Arun with John Bygrave and we met up with two day ticket members who were catching Roach and while we were there Kevin caught a 6lb Bream, whilst John Bygrave was talking to them I walked up to the end of the venue and met up with a Pulborough only ticket member who was trying for Carp / Chub / Barbel with no success his friend who I sold a day ticket to had been catching Roach and a couple of Bream, the river was running off and was half way through it's tide cycle.

Tiese at Yalding 1:
Members & Day tickets can be got at Teapot Island. (Closed during the 'Close' season) Dean Hawkins : 30/8/11 I created the only available swim so far today on the Teise. It was worth doing though as it's the only section of river that is deeper than 150mm. Trotted flake and sweetcorn for an hour and had 3 Chub of just under a pound, saw some larger fish as well.

Beult at Yalding 2:
Members only. (Closed during the 'Close' season)

Snargate (Sperringbrook Sewer):
Members & Day tickets. (Closed during the 'Close' season)
Report from Dean Hawkins 24/02/2017
Fished for an hour at Snargate this afternoon to check if the fish had returned after the de-silting. As you can see from the attached photo, the Pike have! Caught on a lure, last cast of the short session. Please spread the good news via the website. 
Report from Dean Hawkins 28/07/2016

The Speringbrook Sewer at Snargate, between Arrowhead Lane and Mock Mill, has received a 'Summer Weed Cut' by the EA. This is the first time it has happened since I have been a member, so I urge all of you to give it a try, it looks magnificent!


Report from Dean Hawkins 19/10/2015
'I spent an hour there on Friday after work lure fishing, and managed to land 1 Pike of about 5lb. I ran the lure through about 6 different swims, which were all easily accessible'.


Message from Dean Hawkins 14/10/2015
The weed has been cut, the water levels are good and the fishery is well worth a visit for a spot of Pike fishing.


Message from Dean Hawkins 06/08/2015:
Most swims at Snargate are accessible, You can park your car alongside your chosen swim. This should remain so whilst the ground remains firm underfoot.  Please do take a rake along though to clear the weed in the water.  This fishery is under going restoration by the EA with fishing platforms in the process of being installed sometime this year and a possibility of re-stocking. August 2013 CALPAC have introduced approximately 250 Rudd and 30 Carp. In October the EA introduced 100 Crucian Carp, 150 Roach, 150 Rudd and 50 Green Tench. This will hopefully help to begin a new chapter in the life of the Sperringbrook Sewer.

Grand Union Canal (GUC):
Members & Day tickets. Open all year Spent 5 hours fishing about 200 yards West of bridge 196. This is located conveniently alongside The Swallows cafe, adjacent to the local Driving Test Centre, in Swallowfield Avenue. There is access to the towpath via a sloping footpath,ok today but could be slippery in winter. Tried meat, halibut pellets, Marukyu soft hooker pellets,sweetcorn, bread. One rod on float, one rod on groundbait feeder.All I caught was a 3lb branch, and as I was just packing up, a 4 ton canal boat... I did see some ducks catch a few small silver fish, and there were a few fish rising occasionally. Some passers-by told me there were carp and bream being caught in the vicinity of Bulls Bridge, near the big Tesco store. It is not easy to see from your website map if this is within your stretch or not, it would be helpful if one could enlarge the map to clearly see road numbers and names etc. (Note from webmaster. - I will see if the web programme will allow the enlarging of the map)
