Fishing regulations

Anglers should be aware of the legal requirements in place before they book fishing. Each of the rivers within the Foyle area have separate sets of rules and/or recommendations outlined below. There are also conservation codes, individual beat and booking agency conditions to be considered. Fundamental legislation requires that all anglers have written permission to fish for salmon and sea trout anywhere in Scotland.
