Swaffham Bulbeck Lode

The north east bank only from the River Cam to the Cow Bridge, Swaffham Bulbeck..

 

Recent fish surveys by the Environmental Agency of the stock of fish in the Lode revealed very few sizeable fish with many eels and lots of small Pike.  Both of these species predate on either/or spawn and fry.  The lack of sizeable fish was due to a loss of fish under the lock gates, when 2 years ago a log became jammed  under the lock gate.  The water level dropped so low it was only an inch deep at the Cow Bridge and only 9" deep at the lock gate.  Gulls then ate the stranded fish.

 

The Waterbeach Angling Club, Swaffham Parish Council and the Environmental Agency have agreed a management plan which involves removing the predators and restocking with mature fish so they will breed this summer.  The club will not fish the water for 2 years to allow the new stock fish proliferate.

 

In January and February this year, as last year, The Agencies fishery team will be removing Eels and small Pike to again reduce the predator population.

 

The club looks forward to the future on this fishery.
