Hunstrete Complex Update

LATEST INFORMATION FOR MEMBERS REGARDING HUNSTRETE COMPLEX.Dave Crooks Fishery at Hunstrete Arial Shot

The Dave Crookes Fishery at Hunstrete is still closed.

A  CEFAS Agent attended on Thursday 6th October and gill samples taken for examination.

Although still not confirmed in writing as yet KHV does appear to be present.

The mortality rate of the fish has dropped significantly and only the odd one is showing in the last 4 or 5 days. Last confirmation was two on Sunday 9th October.

There is a minimum period of 2-3 weeks after the last reported mortality before it will be considered to reopen the complex if CEFAS permits.

When this takes place, it is likely that CEFAS will insist that members may not fish Main Lake and either of the Pools on the same day and if this does become mandatory then a different ticket for the Main Lake will need to be considered as will any other directives.
