Default Is a marina subject to river closed season?

All I was thinking of going to shardlow marina tomorrow for a couple of hours. Do you know if it is subject to the river closed season or if it's open all year round?

There website doesn't appear to say and it's to late to call

I suppose it depends on what the marina is connected too, our club has a marina but it's branched off the river soar so the city council which we rent the water off insist we obey the close season.

Thanks rich,

It is off the river Trent. I guess then really it will depend on nottingham local authority to decide if they deem this part of the river or not then.

I would have thought logically it is part of the Trent but it's only a guess going on how ours works.

Its part of the river so the closed season will apply.

Thanks guys, I wasn't sure as their website is unclear, All it states is:

"FISHING OFF BOATS ONLY - NOT OFF PONTOONS.
BANKSIDE FISHING CHARGED AT £5 PER DAY."

They really should clarify that it would be subject to a closed season.

I would concur with Mr Crow as have googled said location and it is so far inland that it must be closed season. Was thinking of asking a similar question regarding a river down south but that is much nearer a tidal reach.

Would be best to keep the rods at home and the money in the wallet so to speak.

I know a good canal stretch close to there.

Think I will fish there till their information office opens at 9am. Then give them a call to find out for sure.

It's really not worth being caught fishing during closed season even if it is an innocent mistake.

Default Re: Is a marina subject to river closed season?

I'm pretty much with the swathe of opinion here, if the marina is connected to a river system then the close season applies but my experience of marinas, from narrowboating, suggests that this will come second in revenue terms to clarifying the facts.

The weirdest section of water I've ever encountered in terms of clarification of river or canal, is the section of the Trent & Mersey which comes off the lock at Alrewas and is classed as a riverised section until the weir.

My sister's narrowboat is moored a few hundred yards downstream of this at Wychnor on a section of 'canal' where you can usually trot and is, in appearance, far more like a river.

Which reminds me...

I must go and see her often during the next three months
