2018 fish stocking figures

Fisheries in the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) Public Angling Estate are stocked with fish from Movanagher Fish Farm. The fish stocking table below is updated when monthly stocking has been confirmed.

Fish stock size and weight

These waters will be stocked with takeable fish larger than 25.4cm and an average weight greater than 300 grams. DAERA Inland Fisheries tries to make sure that these waters are stocked regularly depending on their quota, however they are not stocked on a monthly basis.

Contact DAERA Inland Fisheries by phone or email if you have stocking queries. Information on future stocking is not available.

2018 fish stocking figures

BT= Brown Trout
RBT = Rainbow Trout 

July to November 2018

Due to high temperatures and reduced oxygen levels in many waters, there was no stocking of DAERA waters during July 2018. This decision was taken in the interests of fish health. This decision will not affect the annual fish stocking programme and waters are expected to receive their quota of allocated fish in the 2018 calendar year.
