Welcome to the LAC Web-Site
If you arrived at this page first please go to the ‘Latest’ page. Click here
We are experiencing at lot of new enquiries relating to the Lee Navigation.
It may help to emphasise that the LAC controls the fishing along the R Lee’s towpath
from Bow (Olympic site) to Cheshunt and then after about 7 miles (where the fishing
belongs to other managers), from Feildes Lock, Hoddesdon to the end of the navigation
in Hertford Town. That is, apart from the London Anglers’ Association stretch from
Rye House road bridge upstream to the October Hole (which is about half a mile).
It is not a lake but a canal along the southern end and a river at the northern end.
Being a linear fishery there is no fixed post code for the benefit of Sat Nav users.
Access can be found from the ‘River Guide’ pages but remember that there are only
few roads crossing the river along its length. If you rely on public transport there
are many local bus routes dropping one off near to the river and an overhead rail
line runs from London’s Liverpool Street station all the way to Hertford with many
stations in between.
Before you can fish you must be in possession of an Environment Agency rod licence. These can be obtained from your local post office or on line at the EA web-site. The link can be found on the ‘Links page under ‘Management.
Permission to fish is given by the purchase of a day ticket or season ticket. Day tickets £3 (concessionary £1.50) are obtained on the day from our patrolling bailiffs. Season tickets from the 1st April each year can be obtained through the post. If you are a member of an associate club to the LAC then season tickets can be bought from the club’s membership secretary at a discounted price for seniors.
The LAC does not allow for any fish to be taken away from the river and we urge all anglers to take every care of your catches welfare. Night fishing is not allowed. You will probably encounter the non-native American signal crayfish. The trapping and catching of these invasive crayfish is not allowed. However, if you catch one by accident they must not be returned to the river and therefore should be killed humanely and destroyed.
Please be considerate to all other users of the river whether afloat or on the tow path.
Those anglers familiar with this site will know that we have had a ‘guest book’ running for a number of years but unfortunately very few messages and catch report have been made.
