Only registered disabled Welsh anglers can drive to fishing

The Angling Trust (AT) has issued a release today (15/5/20) in an effort to clarify the angling situation in Wales, which was clouded with mixed messages, and had sparked Angling Cymru to announce it was seeking further clarification on the government's statements and Natural Resources Wales' messages of the previous days.

The AT said fishing in Wales is now permitted, provided it is local and you can walk or cycle to your venue. Driving to go fishing is only permissible if you are registered disabled.

The Natural Resources Wales website stipulates that anglers should:

  • fish within your immediate locality without driving (unless you are registered disabled)
  • follow social distancing guidelines
  • follow the stay at home guidance from Welsh Government
  • have a valid fishing rod licence
  • adhere to fisheries byelaws including the close season
  • have permission from the fishery owner
  • You should not travel to Wales from England for the purpose of angling.
