Chard Angling Club
Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, we are afraid to announce that most of our club waters are currently closed until further notice.
It has been decided that Perry street and sadborrow ponds will open on Saturday 13th February in accordance with the angling trust guidelines but the reservoir will stay closed until further notice.
Chard Reservoir is 48 acres of open water. It is popular venue for Match Anglers, Carp Anglers, Ornithologist and Walkers alike. Carp (to 33lb), Bream (to 7lb), Tench and Roach dominate this water.
Chard Angling Club in conjunction with South Somerset District Council control the waters. Night fishing is permitted and proves very popular amongst the Carp Anglers as the swims are large and accessible for bivies.
‘Angling may continue on Chard Angling Club waters but Anglers must adhere to the formal guidelines issued by the Angling Trust.
Matches and other organised events are prohibited by law’
Chard Angling Club have the fishing rights to Chard Reservoir, Perry Street Pond and Sadborrow Pond.
The Club is managed by a committee of dedictaed Anglers and membership of the club is always welcome.
