Lifting of Angling Advisory from July 2021
As water temperatures have sufficiently reduced in recent days, Inland Fisheries Ireland has lifted its July 2021 angling advisory around the use of keep nets.
However, fish that show any signs of stress (caused by environmental factors such as high-water temperatures or low water levels) should be released and no fish should be unnecessarily retained in keep nets.
When warmer weather returns, anglers are asked to be aware of potential water temperature issues when fishing for salmon or trout.
Anglers are also asked to be particularly careful if handling fish and not to remove the protective mucus on its body, as fish can become sick if their protective mucus layer is damaged.
For more guidance around correctly handling fish, please see below.
Inland Fisheries Ireland wishes to thank all anglers and angling clubs, associations and federations for their support of the July 2021 angling advisory.
