Anglers are legally required to be in possession of a licence when fishing for salmon or sea trout. Licences can be purchased from several sources, including fishing tackle shops, Inland Fisheries Ireland offices and some fisheries. No licence is needed for trout, pike and coarse fishing in the Republic of Ireland and sea fishing for marine sport fish does not require a licence. The retention of Bass for wating is covered by EU regulations. Two local clubs, the Aughrim Trout Anglers and the Rathdrum Trout Anglers control the Brown Trout fishing, and day tickets are available.
