The Powdermill fishing lodge is located next to the car park at the top of the reservoir, overlooking the dam and the lake. It is an old building with a lot of character and most club members are fond of its 'dated' look and constantly resist attempts to modernise it!
Due to Covid Regulations currently in place, there is no entry to any area of the building apart from the toilet. Hand Sanitiser is provided on entry to the building to use this facility.
The lodge consists of three rooms and a toilet.
On entering through the outer door, the toilet is immediately in front of you.
To the left is the club room / rest room which has a wood burner and seating. When restrictions allow, there are tea and coffee making facilities available in the Club Office.
To the right is the office / reception. The Club Secretary is in attendance at the club weekday mornings from 8am to 12 o’clock for all bookings, ticket sales, and membership enquiries. There is a small tackle sales area, where there are a number of pre-owned rods, reels, flies and assorted tackle and equipment. All items are for sale and can be purchased from the Secretary or the Bailiff.
There is a telephone in the Club Office for emergency calls.
Although we have no qualified flyfishing teachers, basic casting tuition for beginners can be arranged, in advance, with the bailiff (Vic Partridge).
Outside, overlooking the reservoir there are three picnic tables and seating area.
Powdermill has ramps, paths and a toilet suitable for wheelchair users together with a specially constructed "Wheely" boat with a motor for disabled anglers.
