The Lackagh opened on the 1st January and 3 rods had a ‘throw’. The river is open as a Catch & Release fishery and fishing is with single barbless hooks with all salmon & any Sea Trout of over 40cm to be returned. There were lovely water levels on the day but no salmon reported though in truth, it is still early for this fishery. To date we have no reports of any salmon caught.

Joe Hegarty a member of the Creeslough Anglers seeking the first salmon of the year. The opening day of the 2014 season gave lovely water conditions for the fly on the Lackagh.
