The function of the Eastern Regional Fisheries Board is to conserve, develop, manage and promote inland fisheries and sea angling resources within its jurisdiction (south of Carlingford Lough in Dundalk - Ballyteige Bay in Wexford).
The east coast of Ireland provides the visiting angler with a wide range of top quality game, coarse and sea fishing venues. This regions strategic location close to major airports and ferryports means that quality angling is only a one-hour drive away. This enables visiting anglers to maximise their holiday and angling time.
Salmon, sea-trout and brown trout fishing are available on a choice of rivers throughout the region. There are also a number of notable stillwater, game fisheries in this region.
There are also many excellent coarse fishing venues in the eastern region and these present great opportunities to the coarse angler. The Lakeland districts of Cavan, Monaghan, Meath and Westmeath boast hundreds of lakes in beautiful rural surroundings. There are a large number of specimen waters in this region and the main species include bream, roach, rudd, hybrids, pike, tench, carp and perch.
The extensive coastline from Carlingford Lough, with its terrific tope fishing; to Wexford with its fantastic flounder and fighting bass offer fantastic opportunities for all categories of sea angler.
