Trout Fishing Rules

  • Persons accessing Press manor Fishing Lakes do so at their own risk. We cannot be held responsible for any accident and/or injury to person’s vehicles or possessions, whilst on the premises. It is the person’s responsibility to ensure they are protected and are aware of the dangers of fishing before entering.

  • Barbless or de- barbed hooks only.

  • Artificial Flies only and no ground baiting .

  • For bio-security ensure your nets are dry prior to fishing.

  • Please treat fish with respect - play them in quickly, ideally un-hook in the net and do not let them bounce around on the hard ground.

  • Allow fish plenty of time to revive before releasing.

  • All brown trout to be released.

  • No Boobies or Ethafoam flies to be used.

  • On all tickets a maximum of 18 may be caught and released. e.g. On a 3 fish ticket you kill your first 3 Rainbow Trout, Brook Trout or Blue Trout, then catch and release a total of 18. You then stop fishing and purchase a top up ticket for £9.00 allowing you to catch another 18 trout.

  • Life Jackets to be used when boat fishing or float tubing or wading.

  • Finally a common sense rule : fish courteously.

Remember these rules only exist to ensure the welfare of the fish and the consistency of your sport.

 

Please report anyone in breach of these rules.

Thank you.
