Have you seen this fish?


This is a Smelt.

It’s primarily a sea and estuary fish which can make its way up into freshwater stretches of rivers.
The Environment Agency is interested to know if there is, or has been, any instance of this fish appearing or spawning in the River Waveney in recent years.
So, if in your visits to the tidal part of the river, from Ellingham and downstream, you have maybe caught a specimen or two the EA would like to know.
If you have, please could you let the club know, through the contact page, – https://bungaycherrytree.co.uk/contact/ – approximately where and when the fish was taken. The club will then pass the information on to the EA.
Thank you
