Join our Living Rivers Officer for a special seasonal event hosted in partnership with the oldest angling club in Britain, Amwell Magna Fishery.
There have been wild brown trout breeding in the River Lea for the last 10,000 years – here is your chance to visit and see what is now the last remaining breeding population of these iconic wild fish in the River Lea between Hertford and the Thames.
Take a front row seat on the Old River Lea to discover how wild brown trout cut their "redds" into the riverbed as they prepare to spawn whilst learning more about the fascinating fish of chalk rivers.
You'll also get a chance to enjoy a short walk around the club's private fishery, to see first-hand a fine example of river restoration and learn why it’s so important for supporting wildlife like trout and water voles!
