Environment Agency: Close Season 2022

The coarse fish close season on all rivers, streams and SSSI  annual close season helps to protect fish stocks across England when they are spawning by preventing fishing. Coarse fishing is still allowed on most still waters and canals, depending on fishery owner agreement. It is still allowed on Laybrook but we ask members to look after fish very carefully.

What to do if you see someone fishing during the close season

Contact the Environment Agency incident number on 0800 807060. Try and confirm number of anglers fishing involved, a description of the anglers involved, registration/description of any vehicles belonging to those involved, type of fishing method if recognised (i.e. bait fishing, fly fishing, spinning), location that the offence is occurring, if the offence is happening at the current time and whether or not fish are being removed.
