Kylemore Abbey Fishery

Experience salmon and seatrout fly-fishing in the picturesque valley of Kylemore with its majestic lakes and meandering river flowing into the Atlantic ocean. Whether you are an experienced or a novice angler a day of fishing at Kylemore will be a truly memorable experience. Come along in good rain gear and a pair of wellingtons. We can supply the fishing gear, rods, line and reels. Your fishery guide can instruct beginners in the art of casting or offer the more experienced angler the expert guide’s knowledge of the river and lakes.

Conservation

The fishing of Sea Trout and Salmon runs from February to September. Sea trout are by law strictly catch-and-release . Although one salmon may be brought home for the pot we strongly encourage subsequent salmon and all those over 8lb to be released to ensure future stocks.

Kylemore Abbey is committed to improving and preserving the quality of habitat for both angling fish and the wildlife of the valley as a whole. The Dawros river is also home to the protected pearl mussel.
