Fishing Policy

Published: 28th June 2015

Our policy on fishing on Trust property (adopted March 2011)

Our vision is that restoration of natural processes across large areas of wild land will help to reverse declines in native wildlife. Recreation such as walking, climbing, eco-tourism and deer stalking will take place in high quality wild land and wild places, providing valuable jobs and income for rural and remote communities. We will generally allow fishing on water bodies where this does not compromise natural processes (i.e. where catches do not threaten wild stocks). We may restrict fishing in sensitive areas at certain times of year to lessen disturbance.
