The association would ask all members catching any rainbow trout from the River Derwent to remove them and if possible to take a picture and a record of length and weight and email it to us through the contact form on the website. We do not stock these fish and their introduction from the Derwent reservoir to the wild trout sanctuary is of concern to the club. We have been asked by Northumbrian Water and the Environment Agency to keep records of these fish to determine the best course of action. Thank you for your help with this matter.
