Can anyone please solve an arguement?
In February's issue of IYCF in an artical by Mick Brown it was stated that Gunwade Lake,Peterborough was closed during the coarse fishing closed season as it is directly linked to the River Nene.
This I thought applied to all waters directly linked to rivers.
A friend has contradicted this by saying that you can fish marinas that have access to rivers as long as you do not fish a swim that enables you to cast directly into the flow.
Is the closed season on such waters compulsory or can the owners of marinas etc.apply their own rules?
Cheers.

Hi,

I suppose you could always contact the EA if you want to be 100% sure.
Here's what the general rule says on EA web-site...

****can someone tell me how to shorten these links please[?]****

Thanks Ian.
First time I've looked at EA website.Looks interesting.
Still not too sure as no specific mention of waters connected to river systems.
I might just give them a buzz.
Cheers,
Richard.

For a water to be open in the closed season (pond or lake)

i belive it must be land locked ie no inlet or outlet to a river or stream

but i could be wrong

les

I like work. It fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.

My own clubs water(Pool) come's under the Severn Trent water board,although some pools in the area wil be open during the close season.

They won't let us, so yes, it's up the people that own the waters what they want to do as we only lease our water from them wer'e governed by there rule's.

I fish two pools, one is fed from a very small stream and overflows back into it. The other pool is fed by a spring and overflows in to a ditch. Both pools remain open all year round.

chill out go fishing
