Corona virus – Fishing Update

Coronavirus update
The single most important action we can all take to protect the NHS and save lives is to Stay at Home.

In England, fishing is permissible as your once-a-day exercise with the following restrictions:

  • Waters are to open from 6am to 10pm unless other restrictions apply (Close seasons/SWR’s etc). No Overnight Fishing
  • Fish Locally – you can travel a short distance within your area
  • Fish Alone, with your household (or support bubble) or one other person

In Wales fishing is not specifically prohibited but the following restrictions apply:

  • You may only walk or cycle to fish. The need to carry tackle is not a justification for driving.
  • Waters are to open from 6am to 10pm unless other restrictions apply (Close seasons/SWR’s etc).

Fish alone or with your household (support bubble)
