The fishing regulations in Poland

The angler who goes fishing has to take account of the law.

Before fishing it is essential to obtain a rod licence and a separate permit of a water authority for the certain area (and sometimes for adjoining areas), which allow the holder to fish. The inland waters are controlled by Polish Angling Association, water-companies, fishermen cooperatives and also by private persons.

It is required to observe the legal regulations concerning fishing.

Children to 14 years old are relieved of possessing a rod licence, but they are allowed to fish only under supervision of adults who hold licences and water authorities permissions. Licences are issued by the Polish administrative unit after passing special exams in fishing rules and regulations. The examinations are organized by local anglers' clubs.

Members of Polish Angling Association pay a membership subscription and a fee for local waters preservation and stocking them with fry. It allows to fish local waters (and adjoining areas). Before fishing it is needed to check what areas the permit is valid for. It is obviously possible to pay additional fee which allows to fish coarse waters controlled by Polish Angling Association all over the country.

All anglers who fish waters controlled by Polish Angling Association should respect legal rules and fishing regulations, especially fish limits and the close season dates (it concerns to several species). While fishing waters controlled by other body than the PAA anglers should follow the local regulations. Anglers should be informed about the rules before they start fishing.
