The whole Coultershaw fishery will be closed from 6.00am on 21st August to 10pm on 22nd August. The fishery will re-open at 4.20am on 23rd of August.
During this time members of our fishery management team will be working in conjunction with the EA to improve and renew some existing flow deflectors and also to install some new flow deflectors.
The purpose of these is to increase the speed of flow locally causing differential flow and scour. This can help reduce sedimentation problems in the river, which we know are a major issue.
