Improving Trout Habitat

Can we improve our fishing on the River Eden? One way is to look at our juvenile fish & in particular their habitat. How the habitat can be improved is the aim of two training days arranged by our committee members Richard Arrowsmith & Alan Swann. The training will be led by Graham Pedley from the WTT on a walk from Musgrave Bridge to Blandswath. The training is on Saturday 14th January & Saturay 18th March. Time 10am - 2.00pm. For further information or to take part contact Richard at
