Welcome to the website for Shefford & District Angling Association Ltd.


SDAA controls the fishing rights on several excellent lakes and premier stretches of the rivers Great Ouse, Ivel and its tributaries in and around Bedfordshire, all available on a single club ticket.  The wide choice of venues and species available cater for both pleasure anglers and specimen hunters

In recent seasons, SDAA’s fisheries have produced an enviable list of specimen fish (catfish over 60lb, carp over 30lb, pike over 25lb, barbel over 14lb, zander, bream and tench over 10lb , chub over 7lb, perch over 4lb and roach over 3lb).

Please explore our website to find details of all our waters, membership and other useful information.  The popular ‘News from the Bank’ section gives up to date information on catches and club news.

The track around Broom Lake has been opened to use by vehicles (cars and light vans only).  Vehicles must be driven at walking pace (<5mph) and follow the solid ‘tramlines’.  Care should be taken to park far enough off the track so that other vehicles are not forced to veer off the ‘tramlines’.  Similarly no item of tackle, bivvie, etc must interfere with vehicles using the track.

Broom Lake Gates
Dave Rice who runs the Alcove Syndicate has reported that the shared access gate at Broom Lake has been locked incorrectly four times in recent days by someone using the SDAA key (i.e. the SDAA lock has been left locked onto the gate).  Dave believed that the person responsible drives a white 4x4 vehicle.  Both the SDAA and Alcove locks should always be left locked onto  the large metal ring so that both SDAA and Alcove members can enter and exit the fisheries, especially in any emergency situation

Broom Lake Access
Please note that Tarmac will be modifying a section of the access track that leads down to Broom Lake in the near future.  This will require a temporary detour whilst the works are undertaken.  Members must comply with any new signs or speed limits that are put in place
