Yesterday (wed. 22.11) the EA stocked 500 barbel, 250 chub, 1250 roach & 250 dace into the river Avon at Manor Farm. This is the second mitigation stocking in the river following the recent pollution incident.
All the fish came from the EA fish farm at Calverton.

Re: MORE FISH STOCKED AT MANOR FARM

Unfortunately, monitoring by Avonvale River Action Group and other groups continues to show major issues with water quality in the river.
Until that is addressed, adding fish is just a Band-Aid.

Hi KenL

No data for the Wasperton area on the WA is published...the group you mentioned is only testing from Offenham so not sure were you are getting the info from i have checked there website on Avonvale..?

I will cancel the offer from the EA then for the next stocking of fish in to the river as we are wasting our time then...?

Thanks Craig

Craig.
Let's not get back to the point where BAA staff attack contributors who make uncomfortable posts.
It's counterproductive, and simply drives people away.
The point is that while new fish are welcome, we must work with other agencies to address the underlying issues.

Got to agree with Ken .. there are ways of communicating . Not sarcastic childish reply's . It's counterproductive .

Are we still treating our stretch at wasperton ? If not I'd happily do it if given some kit . I am fishing a stretch below and trust me the river ifar from healthy . I've reported and sent photo evidence to the EA .

Re: MORE FISH STOCKED AT MANOR FARM

Have to agree with Ken and Bazpeck,whilst the restocking by the EA is admirable the Elephant in the room,poor water quality,needs addressing. Of the eleven anglers I spoke to over the last weekend fishing the LAA water at Wasperton,ten fishing maggots,one piker,deadbaiting,not one had caught a fish. Seven did not get a bite. All said there is something seriously wrong with the river.
E coli and fecal matter in high quantities is found,constantly,in samples taken at Stratford. Hhhhmmm,I wonder where that comes from?
Sewage scum,strange odours,some with a chemical twang,some more earthy(being polite) and the unexplained rise in river level every afternoon(treatment plant dumping?) are a concern. Who cares? No one who has the power to do something about it,not the EA,not the Goverment.

Re: MORE FISH STOCKED AT MANOR FARM

Hi all

I am not attacking anyone with my comments and if I have made anyone feel uncomfortable, then please accept my apology.

I think we can all be assured that the EA would not stock fish to this river if they felt there was no chance of them surviving.

We are always looking for members to attend the AGM, and would welcome your comments and suggestions to improve our club and waters.

Hope to see you at the next one in November 2024.
