This public consultation opens on Tuesday, 15/08/2023 at 8:00am and closes on Thursday, 14/09/2023 at 5:00pm

Inland Fisheries Ireland is seeking submissions in relation to a proposal to reduce the daily bag limit of four brown trout to two brown trout on the Rivers Clare, Abbert, Dalgan, Grange and Sinking in the Galway Fishery District. The current daily bag limit of four brown trout for these rivers is included in the Western Fisheries Region Conservation of Trout Bye-law no. 840, 2008 https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/17e7d-inland-fisheries-bye-laws-2008/. 

Having reviewed the existing Bye-law, IFI propose to put in place a separate new Bye-law for the rivers above. A copy of the existing and proposed new bye-law are available for public inspection at the offices of Inland Fisheries Ireland, Galway. The draft bye-law is also available to download below.
