where to fish

The prohibited zones are indicated by those pictographs : 

Icône 1 This pictograh is used alone for a punctual interdiction. When the interdiction continues for some distance, it’s completed with the arrow you see here below. Those pictographs can only be present on the right side if the watercourse is narrow and if the space around allows it.   

Icône 2 This arrow is used when the interdiction continues for some long distance. When the planning of the area needs it, the pictograph 1 is completed by two arrows in opposite direction as reminder. The arrow can be completed with a mention of the distance of the effective prohibition.
