“There is not much point in getting annoyed. It has already been proved that the close season is unnecessary. If the shiny trouser bottom people get their finger out hopefully in 2019 we will have an open season all year round. The fact that canal, enclosed lake and gravel pit fishing all year round has had no detrimental effect on the fish proves that the close season is an outdated byelaw that has gone on for too long.“

Utter and absolute drivel. The canal fishing in the UK is in the main dire, one of the major ones in the UK is known as the Trent and Misery because catches are so poor. Ponds and Lakes are not affected because they are constantly stocked. Fish any match and you will not catch immature fish, you catch fully grown fish.
Apart from that if you have ever caught a Bream for instance during the spawning season you would never dream of getting rid of the close season (try fishing in Holland in April/May) the fish are in very poor condition, covered in nodules.

"Utter and absolute drivel"?

Ok, bye bye sort it out for yourselves. Will not be logging in again.

Over and out.

As a non-angler, but someone who is interested in informed debate, I would very much like to know where that “fact” comes from. My reading suggests that there are very few facts on this subject. Research is sketchy at best, and such that has been carried out, in this country and elsewhere, is inconclusive. It appears that any decisions on whether or not to scrap the closed season will be risk- based, rather than on a sound evidential basis.

Well I must say I do enjoy these debates, however nothing either way will likely change not matter what folks think or strongly believe in.
For me the closed session has always been there, it’s the same for my 12 year old and when we get to this point of the year with fishing licenses purchased, gear checked and ready, the feeling comes close to opening up the boat after its winter hibernation.

It’s all up to the powers that be at the end of the day. Closed lakes are there for folks that can’t wait.

Cheers

"The canal fishing in the UK is in the main dire"

If anything, that is Utter and absolute drivel! I fish regularly on the Calder & Hebble and have had some excellent catches and rarely have blank days. The same applies to the Aire & Calder and The Leeds & Liverpool canals. There is also strong custom for booking matches on these same canals. Not and indication of "dire fishing" methinks!

And, before "in the main" is quoted. the waterways I have named must comprise around 200 miles alone.

An angling friend of mine lives in he Skipton area. He says that the local river Aire is fine but the Leeds and Liverpool canal is a waste of time.
Being a long canal it could be that the stretch that Vetchugger uses does the biz, whilst the Skipton area is naff. Or maybe one is simply a better angler that the other!

Trev, depends on your expectation and description of good catches. Ive tried to search for match returns for the L&L and can't find any. There are no loonger any big fishing matches held on the Canals which tells it's own story and this is against the background of a rennaisance in match fishimg on Englands rivers and thats not just club matches but Nationals as well.
On any fishery of 200 miles length you would find localised hot spots which people who fish it often will know about but on the whole I think Exy's mate is nearer the mark.

p.s. what I did find was reports of local fishing clubs stocking the C%H which may explain why some areas are better than the norm.

I tend to fish the Calder & Hebble mostly and I've had good mixed catched including a 20lb carp.
I fished the Leeds & Liverpool out near Gargrave and caught six good sized rainbows. A couple made fine dining for my Dad. I can't do with them myself.
Oddly enough my most unexpected totally blank day was on the supposedly "stuffed" River Wharf out at Poole.
