The Slaney River Trust reports on the salmon fishing…
While the river was generally quiet for the last 2 weeks there was a flurry of action on several lower beats last weekend as a few pods of fish appeared with reports of 3 fish lost by one angler on Saturday. A little further upstream an angler landed 3 the next day. It seems they have now mostly run through.
Slaney River Trust
For 2019 the river is open for catch and release only for salmon from 1 April to 31 August. The regulations are set out here. Above the railway bridge in Enniscorthy fishing is fly only with barbless singles or doubles. A maximum of 3 seatrout under 40cms may be kept in any 24 hour period. All seatrout over 40 cms must be returned. While we are allowed use barbless doubles singles are very effective if the fish is held tightly.
