Sea Trout Fishery – Temporary Closure
It is with regret that Ouse Angling Preservation Society has decided to close its sea trout fishery until further notice.
The prolonged sunshine and high temperatures we’ve been experiencing have caused a marked, and continuing, deterioration in conditions along the length of our fishery. There has been continued abstraction and a significant drop in flow and oxygen levels – today the river is is green from a bloom in algae which will cause further distress to the fish that have already moved in from the estuary
The Society is continuing to monitor the state of the river and will re-open the fishery to sea trout fishing once there is a significant improvement in weather and water conditions. The medium term weather predictions do not show any appreciable change in the near future so it would be best to assume that the sea trout fishery could remain closed until at least the end of July. Updates on river conditions will be put on our website and news of any significant changes will also be sent via email.
We will be considering the impact of the loss of this amenity once conditions are back to normal.
Thank you for your patience and lets hope this weather pattern breaks sooner rather than later.
