Luton AC bailiffs have been conducting night patrols successfully removing anglers from no night fishing sections with the backing of the Police. Anglers are reminded that only Luton AC members may fish the canal at night and then only from specified sections.
Through a water share arrangement with Barnet Angling Club Luton AC members may also fish several additional stretches (not listed in the membership book) of the River Great Ouse, River Ivel and River Thames, maps that show parking areas etc are available to download from the club web site or by sending a request with an A5 sae (large size stamp please) to the club office. These waters offer excellent fishing for barbel, tench, bream and carp.
