Is Chew in decline as a pike water..?

Eric Edwards has some interesting thoughts on the current state of pike fishing at Chew Valley - which some fear may be in decline - on his blog.

"It's probably fair to say that the pike fishing at Chew is just about the best there is in this country - usually that is," writes Eric.

"Earlier this year there was a fish-kill at the lake in which it is clear that many very big pike died.

"Such things are natural phenomena in which the population levels out a little, nothing much to worry about in the long term but annoying at the time."
