2018-2019 Sea Trout Permit Allocation

2018-2019 Sea Trout permits have now been despatched and should be with successful applicants shortly, if not already delivered.

If you have been notified of a successful application and have not received your permit and documentation by Monday 23rd April, please make the Society’s Permit Secretary aware.

Please note that pool permits are now open for booking by 2018-2019 Sea Trout permit holders. The availability calendar  on our website has now been updated.

A small number of Sea Trout permits are still available for 2018-2019 so if you would like to spend this season targeting some Sussex Ouse Sea Trout now is the time to apply for a permit before the allocation is exhausted.

There is, alternatively, a waiting list for 2018 Sea Trout permits. Contact the Permit Secretary to add your name to the list and you will be contacted around the end of January and invited to submit an application for 2018.

Please remember that Annual Sea Trout Permits are ONLY available from the Society’s Permit Secretary. Please email (click on the ‘Contact Us’ link at the bottom left of any page), telephone (07899 245680 – mobile).

2018 Sea Trout Permits

This year’s Sea Trout permit allocation process will be starting in 4 or 5 weeks time.

As in previous years all current Sea Trout permit holders will be sent an invitation to apply for this year’s permit and will be guaranteed one if they send their application to arrive on or before 31st March 2018.

If you are an existing permit holder and your postal and/or email address has changed since your current permit was issued, please email with your new details.

Once the 31st March 2018 deadline has passed, any unsold Sea Trout permits will be allocated to new applicants according to when they were added to this year’s waiting list. Anyone interested in applying for a Sea Trout permit should contact the Society (email link to the left of this post)  as soon as possible to ensure the best chance of being offered a permit before we run out.
