Closed Fishing Spawning Season

Alert message sent 23/03/2022 12:07:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

Good Afternoon,

Please be advised that the closed fishing season runs from the 15th of March to the 15th of June each year. On most open waters you are not allowed to fish due to the spawning season. Anyone fishing above the age of 13 will require a fishing license for each rod.
If you are in a private club then you will also have to provide membership details and proof of permission to fish at the location.

The environment agency have informed Police that they intend to prosecute if breaches are found to have occurred. Police and local authority will be routinely patrolling fishing lakes and conducting licence checks as appropriate.

Kind Regards,
