    Brown tag fishery for 2018

    The Erriff Fishery

    The Erriff System is comprised of the Erriff River and the two small loughs of Tawnyard and Derrintin. The River Erriff is one of the premier salmon fishing rivers in Ireland. A spate river, it is characterised by lively streams and deep fish-holding pools. It has 8 miles of prime angling water, divided into 9 beats. Beats are un-crowded with only two rods on most and a maximum of 3 sometimes. Angling is rotated on a daily basis.

    There is a run of spring fish into the river during the months of April and May, grilse or summer salmon appearing in June and the runs continue throughout July, August and the early part of September. Sea trout runs are from early July onwards.

    Tawnyard Lough is 250 acre in size and once was the best sea trout lake in the district. However, stocks have greatly declined in the past 12 years but, nevertheless, anglers can still take trout there. The lough is situated high in the hills, in a most scenic area of South Mayo. Grilse and sea trout run into the lough at the beginning of July. Fly-fishing and dapping are the only permitted methods of fishing. Boats and outboard motors are available to anglers.
