The North Western Fisheries Region stretches from Mullaghmore Head, Co. Sligo to Pigeon Point, Clew Bay, Co. Mayo. It includes the catchments of all rivers and lakes that flow into the sea between these two points as well as the coastal areas.
The North Western Regional Fisheries Board is the statutory body responsible for the conservation, protection, development, management, promotion and marketing of inland fisheries and sea angling resources in Ireland's North Western Fisheries Region. The Board is also responsible for the protection of mollusc fisheries in its area of jurisdiction.
The North Western Fisheries Region extends from Mullaghmore Head, Co. Sligo to Pigeon Point, Clew Bay, Co. Mayo. It includes the catchments of all rivers and lakes that flow into the sea between these two points as well as the coastal areas.The region possesses some of the finest salmon and trout waters in Europe and also enjoys first class sea angling.
The North Western Region is home to the mighty Moy River which produces the best cathces of salmon each year. Loughs Conn and Cullin also provide excellent trout fishing salmon angling.
Its coarse fish resources are relatively limited but nonetheless significant and of excellent quality. There are over 20 coarse angling venues where the angler can expect quality pike, some excellent bream stocks and good rudd. There are of course plenty of perch, some hybrids and even a few waters with carp.
