PostSubject: on site meeting with EA at river wandle, and teddington and penton hook   Thu Apr 28, 2011 7:15 am

yesterday TAC reps met with 2 fisheries and 1 technical officer from the EA

first stop the fish pass on the wandle
its called a super active baffle fish pass, designed by a frenchman
is about 10 metres long and cost £10k to construct
the baffles are 10cms high, protrude from the base and deflect the water into the middle, thus allowing fish to move up in the edges
fish using the pass have included 4 inch dace, and even a bullhead

one drawback noticed was that fish passes are easily blocked, so we are looking into ways our club can monitor/fix this problem
in the meantime keep your eyes open, and if you see a blockage, then let us know double quick

part 2 was teddington lock, a very welcome cuppa, and onto the angling facilities, namely the island
our club was praised for the work we'd done on there earlier in the year, and boy had spring sprung forth
it was agreed to allow angling in the approach to the lock, from the island, during october to march, signs will be installed
further signage was discussed for below teddington, as well as installing disabled angling facilities

part 3 was penton hook island
we've been weaving our magic on here recently, so were looking forward to getting some feedback from the professionals
the spawning channel is flowing better than ever before, so apart from moving a boulder at its exit,asap, we're to leave well alone till the autumn, then we will be pruning the vegetation, and using wheelbarrows to get gravel into the channel
our clearing of the remains of the tree surgeons work is to continue, the beetle stacks are much appreciated, and we are to open up/maintain some of the swims, this will include removing branches from the margins
fishing platform locations were visited, and the various plastic flooring options discussed, we highlighted the need for bankstick holes, so it was agreed these would be installed, either by the EA or the club

so all in all a fab day for the TAC, praise from the professionals for the quality of our work, more fishing at teddington, and a commitment to allow our volunteers to do alot more in the very near future

happy happy days

This is all really good news, especially the compromise on "No Fishing" areas at Teddington. A big up to our TAC reps for all of those achievements.
You are really getting us good value for the license fee.

Can't remember fishing rights being increased on the Lower Thames. Big pat on the back for the club lads.

the willingness by the EA to allow a new fishing area, is based on the self policing we engage in at the downstream entrance to the barge lock, and the hard work our volunteers put in on the riverbank

proof positive that if you do the right thing, right things are reciprocated

The River Wandle, Carshalton

Healthy weed growth and overhanging tree's providing a good environment for juvenile fish


This piece of angle steel at the head of the weir dictates the amount of water flowing down the fish pass when raised or lowered
(the water level present in the river up-stream of the weir also dictates this)


The fish pass.
10m in length with a width of 0.5m with an incline of approx 40 degree's


The design of the fish pass provides an easily navigable pathway through the flow of water
