102 anglers from 17 teams across the region fished todays hard event, which was split across Ferry Meadows and the River Nene at Orton.

A Section Monument Bank

B Section Monument Bank

C Section Roman Bank (Only 1 fish weighed in!)

D Section Nene Orton Upstream

E Section Nene Orton Upstream

F Section Nene Orton Downstream

Please note updated 19th Sep 09:55, Peg B11 Lloyd Mahoney informed me that he didn't weigh but the board had him down as 50g. This removes 6 points from Colemans Cottage Tackle & Bait. It doesn't impact on any pools.

I have amended the records to reflect this below.

Update on questions raised from Chris Middleton EA

 

1)      Ely Beet Sports & Social - Sale of the Claypit at Roswell: The new (ish) Estate lead (Harriet Christopher, currently covering Jennifer Kingswell’s post) has confirmed that one of her colleagues (Tony Bebbington) will be contacting Ely Beet shortly, if not already, for an update as the sale of this pit has not been as smooth as some of the others. I’ve requested that Tony either emails or phones Tony Brooks from the club.

 

2)      Histon & District AS - Where to find information on abstraction licences: Check out this link - http://maps.environment-agency.gov.uk/wiyby/wiybyController?topic=water_abstractions&layerGroups=default&lang=_e&ep=map&scale=1&x=357682.99999999994&y=355133.99999999994

3)      Histon & District AS – Flows down the Old West, when do they occur and the possibility of text message alert system: Waterways have got back to me with the following “water transfers occur at night and during the day when required, as they have over at least the previous decade and possibly also beyond. This cannot be facilitated during lock opening hours whilst locking operations are underway although some degree of water will be transferred downstream as a part of the locking process anyway”. With regard to a text message alert which I raised with them, they said “We think its best we include the recharge activity on a new shared calendar for the tidal reaches of the River Great Ouse and Welney Gate status on the Old Bedford. This way the angling clubs could receive notifications directly from the calendar that they manage themselves, we just then update the calendar when recharging the Old West. It will take a bit of time to set up but once done this will be more efficient and allow anyone interested to be able to look and can be used as I-calendar feeds or pulled through to a web site or social media feed so the information would be much more accessible to a larger audience and easier to control, also less likely to be forgotten as sending a text or e-mail manually would be”. I have to agree this sounds like a great idea so watch this space. If we can get these feeds through to a Facebook page the LOFFCA one would be ideal.

Updated rolling maintenance programme attached.

Cheers

Notes for use of this data.  

These data represent a snapshot of the fish distribution along a river at the time of survey. Surveys capitalise on the natural distribution of fish during the hours of darkness.

Fish density.

The value shown for fish density represents the number of fish per 1000 m3 of water sampled. The colour of the circle denotes the fish density as described in the map legend. The volume of water sampled by the acoustic beam broadly depends on the channel profile and boat speed If the total volume sampled is less than 1000 m3 then the calculated fish density does not represent the actual fish density. Consequently within the data set a value of 0.0 would indicate insufficient sample volume.  Conversely a fish density value of 0.1 or higher indicates that sample volume is sufficient. In most cases insufficient sample volume is a consequence of channel width, depth and / or extensive weed growth.  

Fish size research shows that the strength of a return echo relates to the size of the object producing the return.
The equipment used during surveys is capable of recording return echoes from objects less than 3 mm in size. Objects providing return echoes of this size could include reed stems, weed fronds, fish fry and suspended debris. To avoid erroneous fish counts and density value, return echoes are filtered during post processing. Fish density value reflects this filtering and the return echo strength chosen ensures that the minimum theoretical fish size counted is 100 mm.
