Opening Times amendment at Silverlake
17 May 2024

With immediate effect & until further notice, the main road gates at the entrance to our lakes at Silverlake will now be locked overnight due to recent break-ins/thefts on the estate.

Therefore, the lakes will only be open to members from approximately 8am each morning & will close at 9.45pm. The gates will be locked at 10pm prompt so you must be clear of the estate before then.

We are hopeful that this will change in the future but not for a while.

Thank you for your understanding.

There's been a Murrda @ Luckfield Lake
16 May 2024
Some ‘bad angler’ killed our Aerator at Luckfield very recently. I’ve just removed 20mtrs of heavy line, a massive weight & shark hook from around the propeller (image attached or view it on the website/FB).
A couple of things that need to be said:
1. Do not cast close to the Aerator, near is ok, but if you don’t have the ability, keep well away.
2. The line removed is like a tow rope, please be sensible on diameter of line or we might need to add a maximum strength rule (must have been big line to kill the aerator).
3. IT IS A BARBED HOOK 🤬🤬🤬 & big enough to land a great white! Be warned…the bailiffs/committee will be checking hooks, mats etc, if caught you will be told to leave immediately & given a 1 & only warning before having your membership withdrawn without refund.
I hate having to write this sort of thing.
Be sensible/careful/mindful & cheerful.
The lake reopens tomorrow morning (Friday) at 7am. Lots of work done while it’s been closed for spawning & remember to sign in ‘on arrival’ at all times & sign out when you leave please.
Rant over.. enjoy!!

Spawning Fish Restrictions
13 May 2024

Well... that's our 3 days of summer done! Back to normal-ish now (hopefully not).

Anyway, because of that nice warm spell, it has turned the minds of the majority of fish onto other things - Spawning!  To let them get on with it without being disturbed, your committee have decided to close Luckfield Lake until 7am on Friday 17th (subject to extension at short notice).

Other lakes remain open because there is plenty of space to get on with it without being disturbed, all we ask is that you keep well away from them & DO NOT cast among them!!!

Enjoy but please be mindful. Thank you.

Steve, DDAS Sec'
