I can verify my friend has had two moggies from the ouse of 35lb and 64lb hope to add a 40lb carp from the ouse by the end of 2018

Interesting about the catfish. Shame no pics to verify.
Will be more than impressed with a 40 plus carp but doubt there's one in the entire river - upper thirties max I'd guess

Wouldn't be surprised to see a 40 come out...especially up by Hamsey cut. Good to see some moggies coming out at that size too. God knows what species live further upstream now after the 2001 floods when everyone's pond fish escaped.

Probably not that much after Plumpton College emptied tons of slurry into the river on two separate occasions.

They emptied it into the Bevern. The pollution was largely contained before it got to the Ouse. The Bevern has recovered brilliantly. However, this doesn't take away the fact that Plumpton College polluted a very important stream and killed dozens of fish and other fauna.

I've been fishing the Bevern Stream for a decade or so.

The Bevern has not recovered at all. The wealth of species have gone, as have all the larger specimens. The stretch I live on now holds only minnows, a very few unhealthy small chub and the odd transient sea trout. All the young trout have gone, no eels, no perch, no gudgeon, no decent chub or perch, no roach, no rudd. Not even any carp.

Hahaha, may i suggest that's more to do with your lack of fishing skills than what the stream holds.

You could certainly suggest it but it would be a stupid thing to say as I have regularly caught an abundance of species in the Bevern over the last decade, as I think I made pretty clear.
