Wintons Fishery



WINTONS operates a booking system and everybody must follow the same Rules. Once you have become a Member of the Fishery, you are issued with a Membership Card with a unique number.


Booking is essential at all times, please call and give the date(s), times and lake required, together with your Membership Number. Your Membership Number, not name will then be entered into the book, which reserves you a space on the lake, but not a specific swim. If you are booking for other Members, please also have their Membership Numbers available. The swims are then taken on a “first come, first served” basis.


Bookings can be made up to 6.00 pm on the phone or in person while the office is open.


No booking can be made more than six weeks in advance, unless a 50% deposit is paid at the time of booking.


When you arrive at the Fishery for your session, your Membership Card must be posted through the office letterbox with your tariff money or cheque (made payable to Wintons Fishery), BEFORE you leave the car-park and choose your swim.
