Natural Resources Wales have developed new byelaws for salmon rod fisheries on the River Dee and River Wye. To ensure that vulnerable salmon and sea trout stocks are protected in the full length of these rivers we have developed mirroring byelaws for the English parts of the River Dee and River Wye. This will also ensure that anglers have consistent measures being applied regardless of whether they fish the Welsh or English parts of these rivers.

This consultation is seeking your views on these proposed rod fishery byelaws for the River Dee and River Wye in England.
