Sick Salmon

You May Have Seen Images On Our Facebook Outlet, Please Read Below:

For the attention of our Salmon Anglers important information with respect to some recent sick looking salmon from the Environment Agency.

– We have received the odd report in of sick looking salmon, had this today (see distressing pics below) from a ghillie on the Wye and a similar fish was spotted in the pass at Diglis on the Severn last week. It may be again just associated with low temperatures this Spring not unlike 2015.

If you see any fish like this can you please report it on the EA Hotline on 0800 807060 with the location of the fish. Would you also inform Shrewsbury Town Fisheries via our contact page via our website.
Please do not kill or remove the fish as it should hopefully recover as the temperature rises in the river.
