CDAA Fordwich complex

Post  Spratty on Tue Mar 25, 2014 11:45 am

Sunday i went on a bird watching trip to Stodmarsh nature reserve.
On route i decided to take a walk around the canterbury angling club's Forwich complex.
What i saw was terrible....virtually the whole area....including Fordwich, Trenley, Stour, and the Trout lakes were flooded...some running into each other. There was debris, fallen tree etc too.
The whole area is devastated.
Speaking to a work party member...he said that the flooding was coming from fields on the high ground above Fordwich and is a major problem and concern for the club. I was told that the EA has been asked help...but has not given any. (too busy helping the non paying public...funded by those that do pay...the anglers  Mad )
I did however manage to walk all around the complex with my wellies on.

Here are some pics

One of the big trees uprooted along side Fordwich lake...and the flooded path/track

This is the pathway thats runs along the side of Trenley/Stour/and the Trout lake...
the water is a 12" deep (at least.

Half way round and the water came over my wellies. Smile 

Im now wondering if all this water and debris will be gone by June...and if its worth rejoining the club this year.

I also heard a whisper that CDAA waters are going to be taken over by Mid Kent Fisheries next year.....if that is will the final nail in the coffin. pale

Its not good for cdaa at the moment. Stonar is or was closed as the water levels are so high! All the nice comfy new swims flooded. (Oh what did we do before  Rolling Eyes  )
Sure make it more expensive if mid kent take over.
Guess theres even more carp in the river rubbing the barbel and chubs shoulders too now lol
