Top match water receives stocking boost

Lincolnshire anglers can look forward to a more productive New Year on the famous Sibsey Trader Drain following the stocking of 4,000 fish into the Golf Course section of the waterway near Boston earlier this month.

The fish are part of the Environment Agency’s long term plan to boost stocks after a disastrous fish kill on the drain four years ago, with around 2,500 roach, 1,000 small tench and 500 rudd being introduced to supplement around 10,000 fish that have gone into the Trader in the last three years.
