Poaching and Illicit Activity

Angling Trust Illegal fishing information
Flow chart of who prosecutes for what offence.

Suspect poaching or other illicit activity?

If YOU see someone is fishing illegally or killing and taking fish YOU need to report it. It’s YOUR fish that they are stealing.

Its no good moaning about it on Facebook.

If it’s a crime in progress DIAL 999 
If YOU don’t do it who will?

We need every incident to be reported, its the only way that we can get anything done about it.


The other option is to report online at https://www.westyorkshire.police.uk/report-it
This is usually much quicker than calling 101 and you should get an incident reference emailed to you.
Please forward a copy of the incident reference to us at the club. report@ bingleyanglingclub.co.uk
Fishing without a licence call the EA 0800 80 70 60 or the police.
