Fish conservation measures:
We support the work of the Wye & Usk Foundation financially and promote its catch & release guidelines:
Before the introduction of the new Byelaws for salmon and sea trout fishing on the river Usk, ISCA Angling Club has introduced specific rules to help safeguard the future of the Usk salmon. In particular, we protected the larger and very valuable hen fish so that they can spawn successfully.
Isca AC supports the work done by the Wye and Usk Foundation (WUF) and the Natural Resources Wales (NRW) to restore the river to its natural state to help the fish and wildlife that depends on the river being in a good condition.
We also work closely with NRW officers and the police to stop illegal fishing.
Please support organisations that aim to help the salmon, even small donations can hopefully make a difference before it is too late….
