At the LDAC AGM on 13th February 2018 the LDAC Committee announced that a new set of fishing rules had been approved for the 2018 season

These new rules reflect the current pressure the salmonid stocks are under in the rivers we fish

The EA has recently enacted an emergency bye-law on the Camel, restricting much of the fishing methods available to anglers and requiring 100% catch/release. In addition the EA has carried out a national consultation and is in the process of setting out new rules for salmonid anglers across all of England. These will be published shortly

The EA has also contacted the Fowey River Association/Clubs directly and requested voluntary measures now be enacted to further preserve salmonid stocks that are deemed probably-at-risk. At the same time the EA is enforcing new estuarine bye-laws and supporting a Net Limitation Order of zero

LDAC, as the largest Club on the river has agreed to implement new rules to help sustain stocks

To prevent over-exploitation of other Club waters they are also applicable to all other LDAC waters (Lynher, Seaton, Inny, West Looe and Camel - once that emergency bye-law is removed) the following rules supersede those found on your 2018 season ticket and must be followed by all anglers from 1st March 2018

  • Fowey Season to close on 30th November
  • Other rivers’ season dates remain unchange
  • Hooks
    • No trebles at any time
        • No circle hooks at any time
  • Bait fishing
        • Single barbless hooks at all times
          • No worming for salmon before June 16th / after 31st Aug
          • Prawn /Shrimp permitted all season
  • Spinning
    • Single barbless hooks after 31st August
  • Catch/Release
    • Return first salmon of season on each river
    • Retain maximum of 1 salmon per season per river
    • Retain maximum of 10 sea trout per season per river (2 per day, 4 per week)
    • Return all sea trout under 1.5lb (35cm) and over 4lbs (55cm)

If you require any further information please contact secretary@ldac.org.uk or any Committee member.
