Arrests over reports of men fishing in banned part of River Trent

An angler was reportedly caught fishing at a Nottinghamshire lock where fishing is banned. The angler was said to have been caught by Environment Agency Midlands enforcement officials after a tip off of a man fishing in the River Trent at Hazelford Lock.

The lock is located 13 miles to the north-east of Nottingham in Fiskerton, near Southwell, on a rural stretch of the river where fishing is banned. Following this the team worked with Nottinghamshire Police in a joint operation, which resulted in one other arrest being made in connection with the investigation.

In addition to being at a site where fishing is banned, it was alleged that both of the men had no licence to fish. If you are fishing in England, excluding the River Tweed, for freshwater fish, salmon, trout, smelt or eel, with a rod or line you must have a rod fishing licence.

Concern has been expressed in the past at people fishing in the banned spot and locals seem pleased that the appropriate action has been taken against illegal anglers.
