Paddock Wood Fishery – Fishing currently suspended

Members

It is with regret that with immediate effect fishing at the Paddock Wood fishery is suspended until further notice.

This is due to the Committee being recently informed of a change of owners of the site and affects both the lake and the River Medway.

The Committee is currently in discussions with the new owners, and we will keep TWAPS Members updated.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
