Restocking the Dyke


At the invitation of the Rye Dyke Angling Club, Environment Agency Fisheries Officers carried out an electrofishing and seine netting survey on the Rye Dyke in November 2012, The results of the survey were a number of decent (+/-20lb) carp, with silver fish and other species sadly lacking. We are working with the angling club to help build it back up to a sustainable fishery, and as part of this plan, the Rye Dyke was restocked with 5,000 Roach and 1,000 Tench from the Environment Agency’s Fish Farm at Calverton, in November 2013.
