As the hot spell continues, Inland Fisheries Ireland is appealing to anglers and fishery managers to voluntarily cease salmon angling on catch and release rivers with immediate effect, due to high water temperatures and the current drought conditions.

The agency is also advising, for conservation purposes, that anglers on open rivers should stop fishing once their daily bag limit is reached.

With regard to  nets on coarse fisheries, Inland Fisheries is advising that this practice should be suspended.

The agency says it will continue to monitor the situation, and if the current weather conditions continue, it may be necessary to introduce emergency conservation legislation.
