Inland Fisheries Ireland have launched a new campaign which is designed to alert anglers to the intensification of effort to detect those who either take undersize trout or more trout than the rules allow.

“Operation Ephemera” is specifically focused on anglers fishing for trout during the annual hatch of the mayfly and takes its name from the species name for the mayfly.

Compliance with other relevant angling regulations and rules, including relevant permit conditions which pertain on certain lakes, will also be enforced.

Anglers found flaunting the law will receive a fixed charge penalty notice, which attracts a fine of €150 which, if remaining unpaid after 30 days, will result in prosecution.
