Local policy, but basicly all the salmon rivers follow it. It is rooted in data like these:
And being evaluated at least once a year. The river I fish most for salmon, Skjern closes at 18 degrees and opens again when the water temperature drops below 16,5 degrees. This can lead to weird scenarios, where the river opens and closes due to cold nights and warm days.
The freezer filling is on a quota, and this year they split it up in three batches, first one was fished up early May, and second starts tomorrow. Two days ago the water temperature was 17,8, right now its 15,87 so it will probably open.

Common sense isn't so common here too, bitching about closure happens here too
i like the clearly worded rules and no ambiguity, and that's what I'm trying to steer the club to adopt.
When i did the read out from the data logger and saw the peak on the graph my heart sank, not for the trout so much , but the inevitable saga that would ensue, which is becoming an annual event in my calendar.
Ive now been up 6 hours on a work day and been dealing exclusively with this.
So I am determined we can add an extra rule on the club membership and my energies and enquires can then be focused on alleviating the negative effects of this climate change on our speckled buddies in the stream who enrich our lifes.
Anyway no rain, more heat I'm off down the stream with my thermometer to check the latest. And who knows i may get chance to swish the MPR and practice pull back for a while ( its great at trying to zap house flies off the walls while my foots in a surgical boot, Im missing, but getting closer to my first kill!!)
thanks as always
