River Evenlode Fish Survey 2024

The Environment Agency recently carried out a fish survey on a 100m section of the Mill Leat at the Mill Field and a section by the road bridge. They did this by temporarily stunning the fish with electric anodes and then netting them for measurement. All the fish were returned safely to the river.  Measured species were Pike, Chub, Roach, Brown Trout, Gudgeon, Dace, Tench and Perch. Minor species that were found but not recorded are Minnows, Bullheads, Stone Loach, Stickleback and Lamprey.

All in all a very good result with a good mix of species and sizes.
