Trent Powerboat and Ski Club (TPSC)

20 July 2021

Originally posted 5 years ago but probably worth a reminder in light of the various boat-related issues currently being reported.
 
Please note that our Sheldons and East Stoke fisheries lie within a permitted water ski zone controlled by Trent Powerboat and Ski Club (TPSC).
 
Members boats are all marked with a red membership number. The colour of the lettering changes every year. The format is as follows: T002 or T019.
 
Members are permitted to drive their boats at speed (no speed limit) at any time during week days and after 3pm at the weekend.
 
While recognising the potential conflict of interests this presents, the Committee wish to remind all anglers of their obligation not to bring the Federation's name into disprepute, as stated in the published Federation rules, e.g by being abusive or threatening to other water users.
 
The image below shows the extents of the ski zone and is presented for information purposes only.

Poaching, set lines and traps

17 June 2021

East_Stoke_Peg_2_Net
Please keep an eye out for any illegal activities or apparatus such as set lines and traps.
 
It's important that you don't remove any such equipment discovered as this disturbs the evidence and is, potentially, an offence in itself.
 
All such incidents should be reported to the Environment Agency (0800 80 70 60) or the Police, as appropriate.
 
Thank you.

Just to clarify the situation with regard to angler's being accompanied by their dog(s) on our waters:  
 

New Season Dawns

16 June 2021

Happy 16th to all members and visitors to our waters.
 
All the very best for the season ahead.
 
 

Associate Membership Closes

12 June 2021

Due to incredibly high demand, we've reached our membership limit earlier than ever this year.
 
As a result, Associate Membership applications are now closed until 1st May next year.
 
As usual, Full (local) Membership applications will be accepted throughout the year.
 
Tight lines to all for the coming season!
 
 

Last call for Associate Membership

11 June 2021

We've almost reached the membership limit for the new season so will be closing to Associate (non-local) Membership applications tomorrow, Saturday 12th June.
 
All the best for the coming season.
 
 

Please pay or we'll take it away!

22 May 2021

Applications are at such at level that we're already nearing our annual cap on Associate Membership although around 15% of applicants have still to pay their fee.
 
Just to confirm that your membership for the coming season is at risk unless you pay promptly. Simply completing the online form does not guarantee membership - only paying your fee on receipt of the payment link does that.
 
With less than a month to go until the new season, the river's looking in fine fettle due to the much welcome rain after such a dry April.
 
 

Membership opens with a bang!

1 May 2021 19:00hrs

It's still, officially, only Day 1 in terms of membership for the coming season and we've already received well over 300 online applications at the time of writing.
 
If applications continue at this rate, the cap on Associate Membership may need to be applied earlier than in previous years.
 
If you plan on joining the Federation for the new season and live outside the Full Membership catchment, our advice is to apply sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.
 
Please share this information with friends and contacts so that they too have a chance to enjoy the top quality river angling available on our fisheries.
 
Best regards.
 
 

Membership opens tomorrow

30 April 2021

Membership for the 2021-22 Federation year opens tomorrow, Saturday 1st May.
 
The online system has been enabled a little early for testing purposes so thanks to the early birds who have already submitted their applications.
 
If you're applying by post, please be sure to download the current application form (pdf) - last year's form is no longer valid.
 
Membership fees have risen slightly this year after being frozen for several years. Despite the increases, membership of the Federation still represents excellent value for money with the dearest fee costing the equivalent of only £1/week.
 
Full details are on the Membership page.
 
 

Unacceptable behaviour resurfaces

13 July 2019

We've recently reported instances of angler's rubbish being left at Winthorpe but, sadly, we've received reports of other unacceptable behaviour at this fishery.
 
The incidents include anglers launching a boat - not a bait boat....a BOAT - in order to feed their swim. We've also had reports of anglers swimming in the river. Presumably the fishing was slow!
 
Such behaviour is not acceptable and anyone identified will be expelled from the Federation.
 
The Federation's rules cover most of the basic stuff but, rightly or wrongly, we have to assume (and expect) that the anglers fishing our waters understand and apply the following:
Anglers are reminded that NDPF reserve the right to change the arrangements for this fishery at any time including its closure if deemed appropriate.
 
The Committee wish to remind all Members that they are, in effect, bailiffs and that they should look to protect what we have at all times.


 

Anglers who leave litter or light fires will be barred from all Federation waters
