Welcome to
Colchester Piscatorial Society

Welcome, and thank you for visiting our Website.

Colchester Piscatorial Society was established in 1924 and today it remains a relatively small, but exclusive Family Angling Club, with a manageable portfolio of waters in some areas of outstanding natural beauty.

We feel we are privileged to hold such exceptional waters for our members to enjoy, and our thoughts and focus are in managing and maintaining this portfolio, to ensure our members can be comfortable and not overcrowded whilst fishing, and at the same time be provided with some top-quality angling from an excellent head of stocked fish.

We currently refrain from general public day tickets, as this we feel may diminish our exclusivity. As a member you can purchase guest day tickets.

Our membership is still growing but nearing its maximum, however, we are still taking on new members for the remainder of this season and for the up and coming 2023/24 season (1st June - 31st May)
Please take a look at our waters on this Website, because we are sure you will not be disappointed should you wish to join us for a seasons fishing, and like many of our members, go on to renew each year and have done so for many more 

To join, please click 'Join CPS ' on the home page and message us. We will then send you details how to register and and to get set up with your membership.

Thank you for visiting and learning about CPS
