Now in the hands of Wokingham Council so I'm told, so expect to pay big time if you want a ticket some time in the future:bonk:

Is it being run from Dinton Tim?

Yes Dinton are running it. 30 tickets at 100 plus 60 odd quid to join and there may be a parking fee for the pub car park.

160 quid plus??
Too much for me, is that for the lake as well, or just the river Phil?

Is this stretch any good? I only visited once and there were very few fishable swims, the main one on the wierpool being fished by someone already.

Boxy, a few swims on the lake and the river and weir. There was some chat on the RDAA forum a couple of weeks ago as they thought they were getting it. I think they intend to keep it "syndicate" for the next few years to see how it goes. I think they intend to stock it with fish from Dinton as well, but I think it only has a handful of fish at present. I got quite excited about it a couple of weeks ago, but have come back down to earth since hearing of the other charges. Less than 80 quid for all of Twyfords waters.

The lake is flooded every 6 months by the Lodden, so any stocking will
soon be washed out of the lake. It's probably the worst situated lake in the area, as there are rivers either side of it, and the Lodden floods massively these days.
If they do stock the lake, a massive job is on to fence the area - now who's gonna pay for that with the 160 a year fee.:bonk:

Bet they do Mr T. I suspect the existing stock, if any, are Dinton fish, which seem to have a track record of getting on the big side. That should make the lower Loddon and Thames the place to pick up a lump during the next flood;)
Bound to flood again in the early summer like the last 2 years, I would place a modest wager (50p) on it.
