PENRITH ANGLERS AT WORK
Penrith Anglers endeavour to maintain all of the waters under their control.
We regularly replace broken or worn signs and install stiles to aid access for anglers and prevent damage to landowners fences.
Winter storms bring fallen trees into our rivers and, when necessary, we organise work parties to clear any obstacles.
The pictures shown below
are the result of a recent work party on a stretch of the River Petteril
controlled by the club. The severe storms of January 2005 brought down
several trees here and subsequent floods have caused a build up of debris
behind them, resulting in severe bank erosion in some areas and creating
impassable barriers for the upstream or downstream migration of fish.
