Conflict between some cyclists and anglers on River Ancholme towpath
Signs are planned along the River Ancholme to try and avoid any further conflict on the towpath between anglers and cyclists.
The issue centres on long fishing poles that stretch back from the waterside and across the public footpath.
In one incident a cyclist's progress was "stopped" by an angler's pole that came into contact with wheel spokes.
Advisory signs are to be put in place - aimed at fishermen and riders.

Details were reported at a meeting in Brigg of the Ancholme Users' Group - attended by councillors, police and many groups that use the river for leisure and recreation.
"Only one or two isolated incidents" have been reported.
But a request has been made for any more than may occur to be reported to an officer of North Lincolnshire Council neighbourhood services.
Anyone experiencing problems with fishing poles on the towpath is asked to include the riverbank peg number where the incident took place.
The users' group meeting heard it was important that every incident was recorded.
