Salmon fishing in Donegal

February 26th, 2014 | by

John Mc Laughlin, Lough Swilly reports on the salmon fishing in Donegal:


I have no reports of any fresh fish from the Lackagh yet but with a bit of luck and the right conditions we might expect a fish or two before the end of the month.

Under the IFI legislation, the entire Lackagh system is strictly catch & release for salmon angling.

The only allowed methods are spinning or fly fishing with single barbless hooks and stictly no bait fishing.

The Creeslough & District Angling club in conjunction with the IFI have carried out some fantastic habitat enhancement over the last 2 seasons.The Lackagh river itself is arguably the most accessable in the whole country with the recently completed walkways and stiles making for a safer and more enjoyable angling experience.

Permits for the Lackagh fishery are available from Sweeney’s filling station, Termon.

The River Finn

The River Finn opens again for Salmon angling this coming Saturday the 1st of March.

Permits for the Cloghan Lodge Salmon fishery are available here from me at the Angling centre.
