At the moment the fishery owners are playing down the infection. The true extent is only known to them and we can only speculate at present.
There is a thread on it here: http://www.maggotdrowning.com/forums/threads/2566&SearchTerms=cudmore
For the correct, uptodate, position you can give their fishery managers a ring:
All enquiries please contact Mr Frank Clarke or Mr Vick Spooner " Fishery Managers " on
Two pools were found to be affected by SVC. As far as I know Cudmore contrary to local anglers views has remained open.
All nets should be immersed for a minimum of 15 mins to be effective and the disinfectant must be iodine based. Alternatively all nets in fact all tackle should be allowed to dry out thoroughly and I mean bone dry.
Most of the local clubs are up in arms cos cudmore has remained open I have spoken to several officals of local clubs and that is there reaction.
Cudmore attracts visitors from all over the UK so it presents a very great danger that anglers could spread SVC nation wide.
It does not affect just carp either theres pike catfish crucians orfe roach rudd and tench.
I plead with all anglers who are thinking of visiting Cudmore to think again and select an alternative venue.
If you must visit then take all precautions you can to prevent the spread of this disease.
