Our aim is that by improving knowledge within the angling community and of active club members about how best to manage and control weed, your fisheries will benefit.We would like to invite you to a FREE one day Weed Management Workshop to be held at Wicksteed Park (postcode NN15 6NJ).

Our aim is that by improving knowledge within the angling community and of active club members about how best to manage and control weed, your fisheries will benefit.The workshop will look at all aspects of weed management and control including what water plants there are, how they work and the problems they can cause, invasive non-natives plants, mechanical removal, algal control and much more.It will aim to help you:

  • Create a balanced fishery
  • Realise the importance of aquatic weed management
  • Understand techniques available for controlling difficult plants

This workshop has been developed by the Environment Agency and the Institute of Fisheries Management (IFM). We are able to offer your club, or fishery up to 4 places completely free of charge. Further places may be available on request.

Tea and coffee will be available on arrival and during the day however, attendees will need to supply their own lunch. There are cafes and food stalls around the park which will be open for attendees..
We ask you to consider carefully your nominations for this workshop. The cost to develop, and run it comes from income received from anglers buying a fishing licence, therefore it is in all our interests to ensure this money is not wasted. We also want you to get the best possible outcome for your fishery so would suggest the people attending are committed to the club, or fishery, and its future success.
If you have any questions about this event please contact Sue Laver.

Written by

 nwwca header

Off Channel entrace at StibbingtonThe Nene Welland and Witham consultative discussed the possibility of creating a habitat rich backwater on the Nene at Stibbington for a number of years. In 2014 Deeping St James AC worked up a scheme not only to provide off channel winter refuge, but also to provide excellent angling access into what became a 28 peg natural venue on the Nene.

The scheme jointly funded by the EA and Deeping St James AC has shown what can be achieved in partnership.

RIVER NENE IMPROVEMENTS

This scheme was implemented by the Environment Agency with the co-operation and agreement of the Nene Park Trust (landowner) and the support of Peterborough and District Angling Association (PDAA) and the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire Wildlife Trust.

It's another sound demostration of partnership working and providing benefits for both the river ecologly and angling.
