The fishing rules at Woodhall Country Park have been designed to protect both the fish, and the anglers that visit.  By ensuring that all the rules are strictly adhered to, we can be sure that everyone will get the very best out of their days fishing.  Breaking the rules may result in the angler, or anglers, being asked to leave the Park without a refund of fees and/or a permanent ban.  The Park Manager’s decision is final.
