if you spot dead fish, put the details on here

saw my first dead carp yesterday, a single figure fish, and in the last couple of weeks maybe ten bream, in fact the annual deaths to spawning seem less to me this close season, anyone concur/disagree

Any other reports since June? Colin anything up your end of the river?

We saw what looked like a half Bream eaten this week around Teddington, looked more predatory than anything.

Cheers

have seen a few bream, and a couple of small perch and one 8-10lb pike, my assumption is the pike and perch fatalities were due to poor angling

No dead un's seen at my end for ages--good news indeed. Come to think, precious few live ones at the end of my line too......!

I lifted the weirs yesterday morning and up came a very dead carp, caught on the metal structure. I'd say it had been dead at least a week as it was badly decomposed. I'm pretty sure it was a mirror and would have weighed not less than 20lb.

I've just picked up a copy of this week's Angling Times and there is mention of a fish kill (2000+) in the River Ash around Shepperton. Anyone know anything about it?

Chaps Guy posted on the tidal thread about seeing a dead Carp. If anyone see's anything, obviously let the EA know if it could be a polluition incident but also let us know on here.

On the same note but not the Thames, I heard last week on the day Colnemere had the fish kill, there is an article about it in this weeks AM. Very distressing indeed and very sad for all those fish to die. I have heard about oxygen crashes before but never knew the effects could be so complete with every fish dead.
