The fishery is subject to our rules and regulations for trout as follows:-
  • All trout under 12inches (305mm) measuring from the tip of snout to the fork of tail must be returned uninjured to the water - note however Juvenile members may keep trout over 10"
  •  Catch and release applies from 1st July to 30th September

Note that a separate state license is required to fish for salmon and seatrout.  A salmon license can be bought online on the Central Fisheries Board website - here  The River Boyne is designated in 2016 as a catch and release river for Salmon & Seatrout:-

On rivers where catch and release is permitted (Table 2):

  • there is a ban on the use of worms
  • anglers must use single barbless hooks
  • the fish must be handled carefully and should not be removed from the water prior to release.
Anglers should familiarize themselves with the new state bye laws covering the Boyne, specifically Bye Law 907, http://www.fisheriesireland.ie/Salmon-Regulations/salmon-regulations.html, under the title Prohibition of Angling Methods.   This new law overrules any other Bye Law and prohibits (a) use of worms for any species of fish in the Boyne downstream of the Leinster Bridge and (b) prohibits the use of any hooks other than single barbless hook, again for all species of fish.  

Notwithstanding anything contained in any Bye-law, it is prohibited for a person to use or attempt to use worms as bait or any fish hooks, other than single barbless hooks, in angling for any kind of fish in the waters of a river mentioned in column (2) of the Schedule opposite the mention of a fishery district in column (1) of the Schedule.
