There is a reasonably good Mayfly hatch along with other olives, and sedge form part of the usual diet. Brown trout, between 1½ lbs and 2.0 lbs, are stocked and there is a small and growing population of wild browns. We are working with the EA to try and create a self-sustaining stock by improving the habitat.
There is a catch and release policy on the river. All wild browns to be released. All rainbows landed from the ponds must be kept. No dogs are allowed due to cattle.
