Our volunteer bailiffs have been particularly active over the last few weeks. We've seen an increase in the number of people fishing unlawfully. We work hard to protect the fishing for our members and permit holders and we receive regular support from The Regional Park and Edinburgh Police. Don't risk arrest and prosecution, make sure to fish with a permit in the manner and at the times allowed. Permits start at just £10 and an under 16 year old can fish for free with a paying adult. We ask that you fish considerately and abide by our rules. We are a non profit club operated by volunteers and all the money we make is reinvested directly into the fishery.
We recently had reports of Poaching (Fishing without Permission/Permit) at Clubbiedean & Harlaw Reservoirs. Local officers carried out patrols & on 21/05/20 an 18 year old was traced & charged with Section 11(1) - Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Cons)(Scot) Act 2003. pic.twitter.com/zPvbMA0vwm— EdinburghPolice (@EdinPolSW) May 27, 2020
