**High Water Levels**

The heavy rain we've had in recent weeks has led to high levels in certain areas of the site and although there is no danger of the site flooding we are going to close a handful of swims on Oxlease Lake and all of Hunts Corner Pond until the levels drop back down.

Security

**Important Security Notice**

Unfortunately over the weekend we have had thieves on site targeting spod and marker rods, anything left behind bivvies or up against bushes/trees next to the swims. Four anglers were targeted with spod rods/reels, weigh-slings taken along with a set of waders and even a pair sliders!!! The anglers were fishing on St. Johns and B-1.

The police have been down on site today and are looking into the thefts - they have asked anyone who has any actual info or suspicions regarding these thefts to let police or fishery staff know.

Could we please ask anyone fishing the complex to be extra vigilant and report anything suspicious to a member of fishery staff, the police or Oxford Security Services. To be on the safe side, we also advise all anglers fishing at Linear or neighbouring waters to put any unused tackle away at night and not to leave anything leaning up against the back of their bivvy or against trees.

In case the thieves are still in the area, Oxford Security Services have now been called upon to provide extra staff and carry our extra patrols around the site. If they are required then they can be contacted on 01865 751605 or 07395428396 or phone the police.

Linear Fisheries are obviously taking these thefts very seriously and ask anyone with any information to come forward.
