Byelaw- Glen Lough (R Lackagh) – Proposed ban on trolling

Inland Fisheries Ireland is seeking submissions from interested parties in relation to a proposal to introduce a byelaw prohibiting trolling on Glen Lough (River Lackagh) in the North Western River Basin District.

The proposal currently under consideration is to request the Minister to introduce a byelaw on Glen Lough to prohibit trolling for any species of fish at any time. (‘Trolling’ means to fish from a boat, which is being rowed or mechanically propelled through water, by trailing or towing a fishing line with a hook, bait or lure attached).

Inland Fisheries Ireland may, as part of the process, arrange a public consultation meeting if deemed necessary, but all submissions must be received in writing and will be published on the Inland Fisheries Ireland website at



The Public Consultation period will ran for 4 weeks and the closing date for receipt of submissions was 5pm on 22nd July 2016.
