Lough Melvin is one of Ireland's famous loughs offering the chance of Spring salmon from February to May, Grilse from May to July, Gillaroo & Sonaghen throughout the season. Ferox trout are often caught by the salmon angler when trolling but may also be caught on the fly & the best chance of this is often in September. Trolling is especially popular for the early fish but fly fishing is the preferred method for the sonaghen and gillaroo. A ghillie or boatman is strongly recommended and are available from£60/day.
At present there is no limit to the number of day tickets which are available at £10/rod/day or £25/rod/season. This is the section of the Lough within the Northern Ireland Boundary
