Birch Vale closure 12th – 15th December

Please note the river (left) bank of Birch Vale will be closed from 12th – 15th December inclusive, while a number of trees are tidied up.  A shredder will be brought onsite and may need access down the right hand bank, so if you fish these dates and are using a bivvy be prepared to move! However as there will be chainsaw and shredding noise throughout these days possibly best to give the lake a miss altogether until work is complete.

Riverfly Monitoring project

One of our members, Andrew Griffiths, is setting up a Riverfly Monitoring project on the Rivers Goyt and Sett. Riverfly Monitoring samples the fly life at a selected site of the river on a monthly basis, and checks for any sudden changes that may indicate signs of pollution. Riverfly monitors are trained in Environment Agency standard techniques, and the results are fed into a national database. There is an article, [click here] that Andrew wrote for the current edition of Countryfile Magazine*, after attending a training day on the River Irwell. If you are interested in becoming a riverfly monitor, or just want to know more about how riverfly works, please email Andrew on:
