The closure of the fishery for all waters is set for 30 September. Only in the Santa Giustina basin is it permitted until 30 September (except for salmonids and rainbow trout). In Val di Non it is allowed to fish from one hour before sunrise to one hour after sunset. Night fishing is allowed only in Lake S. Giustina, for eel and tench from July 1 to September 30; for carp from July 1 to October 31.
To fish in the area it is required to comply with the fishing regulations of the Autonomous Province of Trento. Once on the spot the fisherman will have to mark the day, the fishing area and morning or afternoon depending on the time of day. Immediately after the catch, the fisherman must mark the species of salmonid caught and the area of the catch. In case of catch & release, the length of the salmonid must also be marked. The number of possible catches is available in the associations' regulations. Finally, the fisherman is required to keep the fish held at the fishing place until the end of the activity.
