Guide To The Northern Fisheries Management Region

The Northern Fisheries Management Region is controlled by the Northern Regional Fisheries Board (NRFB). Extending from Mullaghmore Head to Malin Head the Northern Region encompasses some of the most dramatic scenery and productive fisheries in Ireland. It is also home to a significant stretch of the Shannon-Erne Canal, which links the Shannon navigation to the Eniskillen in Northern Ireland.

The game angling is first class. There are many wild trout waters for the trout angler. Lough Melvin is justly famous for its gillaroo and sonaghen trout, sporting fish well worth a days angling. There are many premier salmon fisheries also, so the salmon angler is nearly always guaranteed a fishable river in some part of the northern fisheries management region.

The top Salmon rivers of the region include, the River Drowes, the River Gweebarra, the River Owenea and the small but beautiful, River Crolly (Gweedore).
