Restocking The River Irwell December 2018

Great news for anglers today – The our local Environment Agency Fisheries Team have restocked the River Irwell with 7,000 Barbel Chub and Dace.

4,000 fish were stocked at Littleton Road playing fields in Salford, and another 3,000 further upstream in Radcliffe and Bury.

This restocking is a continuation of the Environment Agencies support for The Irwell which sadly seems to suffer from more pollution incidents than most – and whose fish stocks need a regular boost.

I could waffle on for ever – but these pictures and videos tell a far more eloquent story than I can.

Enjoy the fishing!
