Report a catch return (England and Wales)

You must report your yearly fishing activity in England and Wales if you have a salmon and sea trout licence, even if you did not fish.

When to report

Submit your return after you’ve finished fishing for salmon and sea trout for the year. You cannot add to your return once you’ve submitted it.
