The above bag limits should not be regarded as targets and Taw fishermen are encouraged to operate as far within these limits as they can. RTFA supports the highest level of "catch and release" especially for larger fish, the important brood stock of the future. As regards sea trout we strongly recommend the release of all fish under 1lb and over 4lbs. In the 2016 season over 75% of salmon and over 80% of sea trout were released. The Association is keen that these levels are maintained for salmon and increased for sea trout. The sustainability of fish stocks is key to the future of our river.
