OAS Committee


The club has been lucky to secure 2 exchange tickets with Loxwood & District Angling Society. Loxwood have approximately ¾ mile of the River Arun, 2 miles of the River Lox & about 3 miles of the restored Wey and Arun Junction Canal.

For those members who like a challenge & some true silver fish fishing this is a great opportunity, also a chance to fish moving waters.

The canal has very little boat traffic as it is still land locked from the other sections. The tow path is clear & level to walk. The rivers as one can expect are strimmed from time to time around the swims and fields can have livestock in.

All the fisheries have mixed bags of Roach, Rudd, Bream, Perch, Tench, Chub, Carp, Pike & oddments.

For those members who can remember, we used to do exchange tickets with Capel Royal British Legion before it was disbanded. Loxwood is a very small village club about 10 miles South of Ockley.

If you see a Loxwood member on our waters please make them feel welcome.

Red Signal Crayfish

It has been noted that there is an excessive amount of red signal crayfish in the lakes this year.

Please note if you catch a red signal crayfish we would appreciate it if you could please dispatch of them humainly.

They are a non native, invaisive species and NOT to be put back in the lake!  It is against EA Rules for them to be returned to the water.


KHV has been declared at a couple of fisheries within the South. Please ensure your nets are bone dry before being brought on to the fishery.

With the increase of the KHV virus we all need to take a few simple steps to protect our fishery.

Ensure All net, net bags,weight slings & protective mats are bone dry before being brought onto the fishery.

Dip all the above before and after use.

Leave ALL nets , mats etc in natural day light for at least 30 minutes before placing into the water. natural UV kills the KHV virus.
