River close season reminder

The last day of the river season is Wednesday 14th March and the close season on the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation and River Blackwater runs from the 15th March until 15th June inclusive so there is no fishing allowed on the Navigation and other Rivers.  Fishing will resume on Saturday16th June 2012.

Each year there is some confusion about Browns Wharf, Chelmsford and whether the close season applies to that section of the canal. It does and if caught you could be prosecuted by the Environment Agency.

The whole of the Navigation including the canal downstream of Beeleigh to Heybridge Basin is classed as a river so the close season applies.

No fishing anywhere on the canal for three months from 15th March.
