The Mersey Fisheries – Have We Ever Had It So Good ?

Mersey Fisheries

Click on the image above to see it full size

The left hand image shows the state of our local fisheries in 1970 and the left hand show the same for 1994

Using our local knowledge.. if we were to update the image for 2018 this map would just show solid lines,,, as all our local rivers now contain breeding populations of fish

This is an incredible improvement…

Today 16th June 2018 is the first day of the 2018 river fishing season for coarse anglers – if you get the opportunity to get out fishing today just spare a thought to the past and how far we have come….

Later this summer we will be working with the Mersey Rivers Trust to update this map

Tight lines everyone – happy new fishing season..
