The Rosshill River is an important spawning and nursery stream for the trout of Lough Mask. This week, as part of their programme for habitat restoration works in the Corrib Catchment, Inland Fisheries Ireland applied for planning permission to carry out instream works to improve the habitat of this river.

The installation of instream structures, spawning gravel and the creation of pools will improve the biodiversity of the river habitat and make it more hospitable for juvenile trout.

If permission is granted by Galway County Council, the works will take place this summer.
