Heybridge Basin Fishing Rules

  • Fishing only allowed from the towpath

  • Strictly no fishing between the moored boats

  • Anyone found fishing between the moored boats will be asked to leave and will be reported to the KDAA

  • Night fishing is only allowed for members of MAS, CAA, KDAA and CAPS


  • KDAA Guest tickets cannot be used on the river Chelmer, but Day Tickets are available at 5 in advance from JP Tackle or 6 on the bank

  • There are no Tickets for night fishing.  Day Ticket holders must stop fishing and leave by 10 pm

 It has become necessary to strictly enforce these rules due to the large number of complaints from boat owners and the anti-social behaviour that has been taking place.

 Bailiffs with support from the police will be making regular patrols along the towpath.  Please have your club membership card and EA license with you at all times.
