In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency, we took the difficult decision to suspend fishing at our River Thames lock and weir sites until further notice. As ever, the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers and staff is our primary concern and we need to continue to minimise the risk of them contracting coronavirus.

Due to lock and weir fishing sites being in restricted operational areas, the sites remain closed for now.

We will continue to review our safe systems of work while adhering to government guidelines.

Application forms for 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021 will not be available until the sites are open again.
