Angling

Northern Ireland is undoubtedly one of the finest angling destinations in Europe.  Whether you're into coarse, game or sea fishing - we have it all!

Game species on offer include Salmon, Grilse, Sea Trout, Brown Trout, Dollaghan, Gillaroo and Sonaghan and some of the best destinations include the wide expanse of Lower Lough Erne in the Fermanagh Lakelands, the Lower Bann system and the nearby tributaries of Lough Neagh, and the the rivers of the Causeway Coast in County Antrim.

Coarse anglers are also well catered for with Pike, Bream, Roach and Perch plentiful in Upper Lough Erne and around Enniskillen, as well as further west in the two Loughs Macnean and Melvin.  The Lough Erne Resort offers a resident Game Angling Instructor who can arrange to take guests on fishing trips.  Visit the hotel's Angling page for more information.

The Toome Canal and Lough Beg, to the north of Lough Neagh, are popular for Pike and other species; as are Kinnego Marina and the Upper Bann to the south of the Lough. 

Sea anglers will be amazed at the variety of shore, rock and boat fishing opportunities along our readily accessible coastline.  The Antrim Coast boasts some excellent marks and species to be found include Wrasse, Cod, Whiting, Plaice, Flatfish, Turbot, Mackerel, Haddock, Dogfish, Coalfish, Pollack, Flounder and Conger Eels.

For information on licences and permits, bag limits and how to get started visit DCAL Angling, Loughs Agency or a local tackle shop when you arrive.  The HIS provide full ticket booking facilities for the Lower Bann and Foyle systems, Northern Ireland's most extensive and varied fisheries.  Visit FishPal for direct bookings.
