Latest news from Rutland Water
Fishing continues as normal at Rutland Water but please take extra care over the next day or two whilst we make good any damage caused during the excessively high winds on Sunday 31 October.
Some Winter restrictions are now in place. Firstly all browns must be returned alive as they are now out of season. This will be the case for the rest of this season and through to the end of March. When fishing the harbour at Rutland barbless or debarbed flies are now mandatory; in addition if you are fishing from the harbour wall you must use an unhooking mat if you are taking Browns out of the net and onto the wall to unhook / photograph. Mats can be borrowed from the fishery. Secondly there are a number of out of bounds areas to be aware of. At Rutland, for boat anglers, the ends of the arms are now out of bounds, for bank anglers it’s the same areas as the boat anglers, but also Dickinsons on the North shore and Gibbets through to the sailing club on the south. Search Anglian Water Fisheries on Facebook to view a detailed map showing the out of bounds areas.
