Fish Trap River Loy

Mon 25 September 2017

A new trap has been placed on the River Loy - grid ref 214878 781808, about half way between the road bridge and the canal tunnels. We plan to run the trap till late December but will keep folk up to date on facebook.

The trap will be shorter than last years, the idea is it will overtop in high water conditions. The trap will be well signed so it is obvious where it is, even when it is underwater. 
The trap will be downstream of the exit point just below the road bridge so hopefully won't be an issue for most paddlers. However the trap will be upstream of the tunnels so if people want to go through those they will have to get out at the bridge and put back in downstream of the trap: we are sorry for any inconvenience this causes.
