Aligator Found In Chew Valley Lake


Recommended Posts

A few years back we saw quite a few large terrapins on the Bridgewater canal around Barton swing aqueduct. These were the size of dinner plates. It was thought that owners bought these as pets, and when they got too big, threw them into the canal. This happens a lot with exotic pets.

I used to fish Chew and Blagdon in my teens with my father. In those days they netted and anything that was not trout had had it. These days Chew is as much known for it's huge Pike as the trout so I doubt a little fellow like him would last long.
