Wild trout seen spawning in Wandle headwaters

For perhaps the first time in 100 years, wild trout have been sighted spawning in the Wandle’s headwaters, well above the point where the pollution entered the river on 17 September 2007.

It’s an amazing vindication of the success of our annual Trout in the Classroom programme, and a great pointer to the Wandle’s potential as a sustainable mixed-species urban chalkstream.

Here’s the full story from the Daily Telegraph, written by our good friend (and Wandle fishing fanatic) Charles Rangeley-Wilson.
