Apparently the owner has taken to locking the gate to keep undesirables out, it would perhaps be a good idea to check that access is available before going.

Thank Dave, do you know if night fishing is allowed, does it get very busy weekends etc.
Yes night fishing is allowed. Probably locking the gates on a night to stop the local undesirables thrashing cars around
