Barbel Stocking in River Aire

At the end of November the Environment Ageny stocked 7500 Barbel into the River Aire at various sites, 750 at 3-4″ were stocked at Myrtle Park – some of which are pictured above. Barbel of approximately the same size have been stocked here annually by the Agency since 2009 (approximately 2500 fish by my reckoning), the club also stocked 200 Barbel at 8-10″ in 2007. More EA Barbel are anticipated for the Aire in 2013 and also 2015. See you there, don’t forget your Rod Licence
