Stake Holders

There are may stake holders throughout the Mill Waters project and with good management and mutual respect this will strengthen the position of angling within the wider Mill Waters Project.  It is important to note that the Adventure Base fully supports fishing access to Kingsmill Reservoir, they operates seven days a week including evenings on the water and will wherever possible maintain a safe distance from pegs in use, however please be mindful that in certain weather conditions and with novice groups this can be very difficult even with experienced and qualified instructors.  If you experience an issue with a group of water users that you do not feel was handled appropriately please be patient allow them to pass/move on and then contact the Adventure Base Head of Centre directly who will address your concern
