Rules for Carp Fishing

Like any other hobby, the practice of fishing for carp obeys a set of rules that we share.

But why make an article on this topic? Well because fishing is practiced with a partner. For the carp, this partner game is the carp. Without this freshwater fish, no fishing!

Recreational fishing stakeholders have therefore implemented 7 main rules to regulate the practice of fishing. These rules concern mainly the material and the environment.

All this is set up for the sole purpose to protect the physical integrity of the carp and its well-being. After all, the carp is also a living being who deserves respect as every other living being present on our planet.

The 7 main rules for carp fishing

The practice of fishing for carp leaves a wide choice in equipment to use to try to catch him. However, there are still a number of rules to respect. We explain them immediately.

1. get a fishing card

The possession of a fishing license is required to fish in France. This map provides a right of access and fishing areas or territories determined. In other words, fishing permit allows you to fish in the Department of your choice. The range of fishing maps is large enough to choose the one that suits you.

2 adhere to an A.A.P.P.M.A

THE A. A.P.P.M.A is the acronym of the Association approved of fishing and Protection of the aquatic environment. An A.A.P.P.M.A membership is included in the contribution of the fishing card. This contribution allows you to fish in areas where your association is installed.

For example, if you take a map of fishing in the Department of Essonne (91 Department), you can fish on ponds located in this Department (provided that the A. A.P.P.M.A has the rights of exploitation of the fishing grounds in the Department).

3. be equipped according to the fishing methods permitted

Rules for Carp Fishing 2

Each CARP must equip equipment so as to meet the following criteria of fishing methods:

-Maximum of 4 lines mounted on cannes.

-Each line 1 maximum hook.

-The rods should be positioned near the carp.

These criteria apply only to the Department in which you took your SIN card.

On all the public domain of France (outside your Department), you can fish only with 1 line mounted on cane. If you have the tile of reciprocity E.H.G.O (Western fisheries agreement), you can fish with several lines in the member departments as well as in the concerned C.H.I (Club fisheries science). This, to subscribe to the option of reciprocity.

Note: for women and children under 12 years old, only 1 line is allowed.

4 fish during opening hours

Fishing may be exercised 30 minutes before sunrise the Sun and up to 30 minutes after sunset. Reference times are based on an official calendar plus an hour depending on the Jet lag according to the seasons (summer or winter).

Night carp fishing may be permitted by the Prefecture, some areas of watercourses and water bodies of 2nd category.

5. Respect the opening period

In General, carp fishing is open all year from 01 January to 31 December of the same year. For some fishing grounds, there may be special rules. Before fishing on the selected area, make sure that there is no period of closure of the fishery. This will avoid some surprises.

6. Prohibited the transport of carp!

Regulation may be carried live carp more than 60 cm of day and night. You may at this practice, if it is punishable by law. It’s a punished offence to a fine of €22 500, according to art. L.436 – 16 (5) of the Code of the environment.

Another important point: during the night, no fished carp cannot be maintained in captivity or transported.

During the sessions of night fishing, all carp caught must be immediately released for a release. This release must be in compliance with the carp in order to respect his property be and limiting his stress.

7. Avoid the works of navigation and fisheries

There is a ban on fishing near the navigation works because these places are dangerous. This prohibition is valid regardless of the place of fishing (from the shore or directly on the water) and regardless of the material used (boat, boat or float-tub).

For example, it is forbidden to fish close to a dam or to navigate on the water close to a dam (less than 50 m downstream).

In terms of carp fishing defined on Prozipcodes, it is prohibited in order to let the CARP reproduce safely. Near the works of navigation, you can also find fishing areas. They were also banned fishing for the same reason as mentioned just above it.

The number of rules to respect is finally restricted.  But they are essential for a healthy fisheries and in the respect of the CARP practice. These essential rules are mainly turned towards the regulation of the equipment and related to the protection of the environment.
