You will have seen in the news that the Government latest rule review on social distancing will allow Angling (in England only) to recommence on Wednesday 13th May. Before HAS can open their Harefield Lakes they need to obtain permission from the land owner (Hillingdon Council). Negotiations are currently ongoing with the Council to agree the terms we can safely open the waters. Until we receive the necessary permission to open the Harefield lakes they will remain closed.
Hopefully, within the next few days, I will have further news on how and when the Harefield lakes will reopen.
Rowley lake is currently closed (due to open on 16th June).
Please continue to check this webpage for further information on when the lakes will reopen.

H.A.S. had an agreement with the Yiewsley Angling Society to fish a stretch of the River Colne that they leased. Unfortunately this agreement has now been cancelled because Yiewsley Angling Society will not be renewing their lease for the coming season. The Committee did discuss bidding for the lease, but decided as only a small proportion of membership fished this water it was best not to proceed.
The River Colne has now been removed from the HAS portfolio.
