The lower lake at Little Bognor needs maintenance on the retaining wall near the outflow which is subsiding. The water level will be lowered and the work may continue through the winter into the spring.

The water level in Great Springs, Little Springs and Lower Figgs will be reduced during the winter for maintenance and to combat the weed growth.

Some members have expressed interest in all year fishing; such essential lake maintenance, along with other Estate activities, means that all year fishing isn’t possible.



Four benches were placed beside the river at the start of the 2019 season, one for each beat. The Estate wish to keep the landscape along the river as natural as possible and to discourage the public from accessing the river, so there are no plans to increase this number.

Adverse weather conditions have hampered the completion of improvements to the 2017 riffle, but this work will be completed as soon as possible.
