PostSubject: Another Kennet Fish Rescue   Fri Nov 18, 2011 2:04 pm

Over 100 fish including brown trout and Grayling were rescued from the River Kennet at Manton near Marlborough yesterday.

Responding to a report by a member of the public, Environment Agency Fisheries Officers successfully netted the fish from isolated pools in a section of the river that had dried up as a result of the exceptionally low rainfall.

Fisheries Officer Dan Horsley said 'This is the first time we're carried out this type of operation so late in the year. Fortunately we were able to transfer the fish downstream to a location with a secure flow'.

The Environment Agency is collaborating with Action for the River Kennet and local riverkeepers to protect fish stocks in the upper Kennet during these times of low flows.

The K&A canal is shut at Crofton [high point of the canal] because the feeder springs in the lake that is the water scource for the canal are drying up ,The locks have been padlocked to stop boat movements lowering the levels even more,we need rain and shed loads of it this winter or next year there will be big probs with water levels/flow in our rivers .
