Trout fly fishing around Dundalk
Dundalk, Co. Louth is located north of Dublin and is easily accessible from the airport using the M50 motorway. Dundalk offers a number of fantastic game angling waters including the Dee, Glyde, Fane, Ballymascanlan and Castletown rivers. All of these rivers flow into the Irish sea at Dundalk Bay. These rivers contain good stocks of wild brown trout as well as salmon and sea trout.
Bye-law No. 824, 2007 prohibits the use of any fish hooks, other than single barbless hooks, and the use of worms as bait in angling for all species of fish in the Rivers Flurry, Glyde (that part of the river downstream of Castlebellingham Weir), Dee (that part of the river downstream of Cappogue Bridge).
