Reasons for Survey

Wye Salmon Association [WSA]are endevouring to establish the salmon angling communities view of water conditions on the River Wye, its fitness for purpose with regard to salmon angling and to gather information regarding the anglers views on salmon stocks.

I know we all have our own views on the issues but need to document them in order to present them to the appropriate authorities.

We are planning to discuss with NRW urgently. Before doing so we wish understand fully you the anglers, owners, gillies and others of the angling community views in order that we may represent you fully, both in our discussions with NRW and in the development of ideas, actions and projects we feel might help resolve the problems.

The survey contains no personal information on the contributors.
