April 2017: Netting restrictions in the Camel and Fowey

The  SW1 Prohibition Of Nets (Applied in the River Camel and River Fowey)  byelaw will be coming into effect from the 1st of May.

This long standing byelaw prohibits the use of nets between May and December (inclusive) for taking fish in tidal waters in the River Camel and the River Fowey

Please note that Cornwall IFCA currently has the River and Estuarine Fishing Nets Byelaw  2017 under consideration by Defra. If it is confirmed, this byelaw will have considerable impact on netting in all Cornish rivers.  Please keep checking this website and our Facebook page for regular updates.
