Estuary fishing - at what point does the river become privat

I'll shortly have the opportunity to fish the River Lune at Lancaster. It's tidal here so I assume that I won't need a licence? Or can a tiday estuary be private?

The Lune is a salmon river so I'm hoping for some fun. Does anyone have any experience of such fishing - best times to fish, best bait, do you use ground tackle or can you spin or both.

Im hoping to catch me a wild salmon.

Check with the Local Environment Agency office, my guess is the height of the tidal reach but it's just a guess.

You need an Environment Agency rod licence to fish for salmon, trout, eels or any freshwater fish up to six miles out to sea, I'm afraid.
As for whether or not you'll need a permit; the foreshore traditionally doesn't require one, but different tidal areas have their own laws depending on the landowner, and harbours are a case in point. You'd be best off contacting the local fishing tackle shop who would be able to point you in the right direction.

You do need a licence to fish along the Lune and there are certain points (usually the best bits) which are owned by private fishing clubs

And I quote

"Any angler, aged 12 years or over, fishing for salmon, trout, freshwater fish or eels in England (except the River Tweed), Wales or the Border Esk and its tributaries in Scotland must have an Environment Agency rod licence"

We are allowed to fish the Tay up to the 'Old Bridge' in Perth. This is regarded as the top of the tide, after that it becomes mega expensive.

Sorry but you are mis-informed,apart from it being a different country,Salmon fishing(in Scotland)is owned by the riparian owners.
So TSF own a lot of the estuary fishing all the way to D/dee.

However for non-migratory trout and "white fish" you may fish up to the tidal limit(Rome croy).

140 ish is not expensive for the SAA on the Tay for a year and if it`s the PDAA then it`s even cheaper and covers more water.

If you need cheap salmon fishing the Perth residents permit is extremely cheap.

As for England ......... ?.?.?.?
