Sheepbridge Weir Baffles

Possible Low Flows On the Loddon Over Bank Holiday Weekend

We have been notified by the Environment Agency that they will be fitting a baffle system to the weir at Sheepbridge (Swallowfield), starting 22-08-19 and is due to finish early next week. As a result of this, the downstream levels may be lower than normal, however siphons will be running to help maintan flow which will be monitored.

We would ask all members who intend fishing over the next few days to be aware of the situation, but also to report anything abnormal that mat be happening over this period such as fish in distress etc. The hotline number is 0800 80 70 60.

We would hope that once complete, it will aid in fish migration both up and down stream.
