On Wednesday 12 June, 2024, a draw was scheduled to allocate 64 Brown Tags for the taking of salmon on the Roughty River. The requirement to hold a brown tag is set out in Wild Salmon and Sea Trout Tagging Scheme (Amendment) Regulations, recently signed into law by the Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications, Eamon Ryan, T.D.

A total of 52 valid entries were received from salmon rod licence holders. Each was assigned a number in advance of the draw.

As the number of entries was less than the number of tags available all valid entries were allocated a tag.

The Brown Tags will be issued by post.  All anglers are asked to acknowledge receipt of their Brown Tag by email including the tag number to  [email protected]

Final Draw – 07 August

The final draw will open for entries from 22 July to 04 August with the draw taking place on 07 August.
