Dove Valley Angling Association

A view of one of our waters captured by forum member "Fiss23"

The DVAA is a well-established club with its origins in Uttoxeter and has a membership of approx 700. The club controls the fishing on 11 pools containing most species of coarse fish and is open all year round.

Some pools contain large Carp for the specimen angler, whilst others contain quantities of smaller fish for the pleasure angler and the match angler. All of the pools have safe car parking which in most cases is within close proximity to the water.

For the river enthusiast we have approx. 6 miles of bank on the River Dove which holds a good head of Barbel & big Chub with the chance to catch that elusive double figure fish of your dreams.

For those hardy winter anglers out there then the opportunity to catch quality Grayling to over 2lbs should be making your mouths water.

There is also a short section of the River Churnet.

Night fishing is available on the River Dove and some of the pools and is subject to holding an additional permit.

Our waters are located on the Staffordshire / Derbyshire border and are approx. 10 to 15 minutes drive from the main A50 Derby to Stoke road.

  • River Dove - 6 Miles

  • Ashgrove Pool - 2 Acres
  • Aldermoor Pool - 2.5 Acres

  • Information

    Full annual Membership is available and runs from April 1st to March 31st.

    Day tickets are not available.

    The Committee via Notice Boards, Annual Newsletters and The DVAA Forum aim to keep their members updated on any developments relating to the waters controlled by them and any social evenings being held

    We also have a very active Members Only Forum which has served as a social hub for the past 10 years.

    The forum is very friendly and well moderated by a select few people. We like to think that because of this level of attention the forum does not incur problems like so many others.

    A Forum for members run by members with a common sense outlook & level of control has served us well.

    We encourage all new members to take a peek & join in.
