Pacific Pink Salmon

What to do if you capture a pink salmon
If you are confident that you have caught a pink salmon it should be dispatched and retained. Please do NOT return it to the river.
If you are unsure about the identification, if possible please call the Environment Agency on our hotline number (0800 80 70 60). If possible retain the fish alive in a keep net. Otherwise, you should release it.

Please report your capture to Joel Rees Jones of NRW or include details of where you caught it and, if possible, a photograph of the fish, to Jonathan Shelley at the Environment Agency by email: [email protected] or by post: Brampton Fisheries Laboratory, Brampton, Peterborough, Bromholme Lane, PE28 4NE.
If possible, please make the whole fish available to us for inspection and further analysis. Otherwise, a sample of the scales would be very helpful.
Thank-you for your assistance.

CADAC Working Parties

CADAC relies upon the goodwill of members to assist in general maintenance work relating to the fishery. Constructing benches, stiles, walkways, clearing fallen branches and habitat work are just some of the tasks involved.

There are effectively 3 working parties active on CADAC waters - a Sunday and Wednesday group and a Balsam clearing party which operates during the Summer months.

Members attending at least 4 working dates are entitled to certain privileges. CADAC have secured the use of an exclusively Private Beat and only the Work Party members may fish it. Furthermore, access to one of the most productive Salmon pools is restricted to Work Party members only during the last full week of September - we also have an annual Working Party lunch.

If you're a member of CADAC please do your utmost to join these Parties.......we will all benefit!

The Committee would like to thank everyone who participated during the 2016/17 sessions - the 2017/18 will be advised in due course. 

Please contact Gareth Jones on 07824 504796 or Dylan Roberts on 07802 843489 with all Working Party queries
