Please note

Due to the lake not getting used so much this time of year we have decided to leave the electric fence on  24hours a day 7 days a week.
This is in order to deter any predators
The good news is keepnets are now allowed to be used on Stoutshill Lake

Fisheries shut down

As with the previous national lockdown the following Stroud AC fisheries will be closed until notice.


The good news is Stoutshill Lake and Gloucester Canal at Southfield Farm, Hardwicke are both open for pleasure angling only. 
Please ensure you adhere to all the Covid rules regarding social distancing and local travel only.

Sorry no matches to be organised.

Do not ruin it for others by trying to circumnavigate these rules. 


  •  Due to the appalling behaviour of some anglers towards staff at Southfield Farm the club have taken measures to bring a halt to this in order to retain our rights of passage over the farms land.

  •  1). The rights of passage through the farm applies to members of Stroud & District Angling Club only. Do not attempt to enter without a club card as you will be trespassing.
  • Do not bring friends/family members to the fishery who are not in possesion of a club card. Only membership card holders are covered by the clubs insurance policy. Dogs are also banned from all club waters.

  •  2). Any person reported to be harassing or being abusive to any members of staff of the farm will be banned from the club for life. After which any attempt to enter the farm will be deemed as trespass and prosecution will be pursued.

  •  3). The number for the combination lock on the entrance gate is clearly printed in the club card. If you do not have the number you will be deemed to not have a club card and as such have no right to entry.

  •  4). There is NO NIGHT FISHING on ANY club waters. All anglers must leave the water 30-minutes before dusk. Except for events organised by the club.

  •  5). Bailiffs will patrol the fishery at various times. They have a legal right to check both club memberships and Environment Agency rod licenses. Failure to show either will result in the person being asked to leave the fishery.

  •  6). The club and/or farm staff reserve the right to record the details of all vehicles entering the farm.
