Most used values
According to taginfo the most used values are yes, no and private. In the context of fishing these values have the following meaning:
- yes - the area is open for fishing by anyone with a fishing license or permit (if the area requires one). See access=permit for a useful combination if you know that the fishing location requires a fishing permit. Fishing permits are usually released locally or online (see permit_release).
- no - the area is prohibited for fishing
- private - the area is available for fishing after paying a tax or a fee to a third-party entity
- catch_and_release - fishing is allowed but it is mandatory to practice the wikipedia:catch and release. Usually a daily or seasonal permit is required.
- permit_release - emission of fishing permits for rivers where fishing is permitted on a daily or multi-day basis. It is usually a hut, a tourist information center, or a bar.
How to map
Adding fishing tag on water elements like lakes, ponds or other polygonal elements.
For water elements with regular non island geometry add the according fishing=* tag to the way.
For water elements with irregular island geometry create a multipolygon relation and add the according fishing=* tag in the relation. Add the inner and outer roles for the specific geometries.
