  • THE EVENING RISE CAN PRODUCE SOME NICE TROUT TO THE DRY FLY

    The Boyne has all the fly hatches associated with a limestone river. The most prolific hatches include olives and sedges and there can also be good hatches of the mayfly Ephemera danica. There are a number of popular fishing locations in the Navan area and these are located at Kilcarn, Blackcastle and Dunmoe. There is also good trout fishing in the Stackallen area and downstream of Slane at the Scabby Arch, Crewbawn, Johnsons, Rossnaree and Staleen. Fishing can be good all year round depending on weather and water conditions but the best of the fishing is from mid May to mid September. Some of these areas can weed up in summer but there is still a lot of accessible water. Anglers wishing to fish for wild brown trout on the river Boyne must have the necessary permission and permit from the local Angling Association.
