A Sea Trout From The Roch

One of our members has recently caught this magnificent 21" trout from the River Roch - a tributary of the Irwell.
My money is that its a sea trout what do you think?

If any of you catch what you might think is a sea trout or salmon from the Irwell, or any of its tributaries - please please please take a scale sample from the fish and contact
The EA are adamant that there are no migratory fish in the Irwell system - despite growing photographic evidence to the contrary.
The EA can prove whether a fish as been to sea or not by analysing the growth rings within the scale.
When we can prove that Sea Trout are running the river again, the amount of grant money available to us will dramatically increase.
We are constantly working to get fish passes installed on the 3 main barriers which block the fish from accessing the Irwell: namely the 3 locks on the Manchester Ship Canal at Irlam, Barton and Mode Wheel.

Scale Sample - Scale Sample - Scale Sample !

The last recorded salmon on the Irwell system was in 1856 - get out there this autumn - you could get your name in the history books!


  1. I would love it to be a sea trout but it looks like a big brown.

  2. Sea Trout. I think there's enough opportunity from the boat traffic & high flow events for the odd one to get through the locks/sluices

  3. If the Trx Suspension Online package is all rugged and out of shape, regardless of how much of a treasure the inside is, no one will be interested.
    Some of these Cheap Trx will come with the product for free but if high quality package has to be done like in wholesale, the buyer has to compensate for the extra packaging.
    It seems that among the consistently hottest sellers from this TRX suspension trainer line is the Highrise.
    High quality packaging of TRX For Sale, watches, earrings and other help protect them from getting dust or moisture from the environment.
    When people see a buyer carrying a bag with the TRX Suspension Training Sale of the company, they will definitely get attracted and pulled towards with an urge to get the same.
    trx exercises also enhances flexibility in transport.
    If the Trx Workouts has a good shape, it will be much manageable to transport and distribute.
    This is highly paid much to details because the cheap trx company has stores all over the world and a slight mistake can end up destroying the whole collection.
    In today's world, nothing without a trx for sale package has the ability to sell including an eraser.
    Simple though very important thing to consider is that the TRX Workouts Sale package is not only aimed at preserving, but to get the attention of the target market.
