Newry Canal

The species found in the canal include Roach, Bream, Rudd, Eel, Perch, Pike and Trout, a few years back Tench were introduced and make an appearance now and again. The canal fishes all year round and the distinctive areas provide excellent sport throughout.

Newry Canal (inland from Newry city)

This is a summit level canal with several locks designed to ‘lift’ barges over the watershed between Newry and the Lough Neagh basin. The locks lie open today and there is a flow of fresh water through the canal. On the lower sections the canal is weed grown. The canal is controlled by Newry and Mourne District Council.

There is coarse fishing for perch, roach, bream and pike.

A permit is not required for this water – although an angler must hold a Loughs Agency rod licence

Newry Ship Canal (seaward of Newry city)

The old ship canal was built to link Newry to the sea. It runs for 3 miles from the Albert Basin in the town to Victoria Lock where it meets the waters of Carlingford Lough.

There is parking in the city of Newry and at Victoria Lock. Several platforms (pegs) have been built along the Newry to Omeath road. Car parking is limited and care is required on this busy length of road!

The canal is controlled by Newry and Mourne District Council.

There is coarse fishing for perch, roach, bream and pike.
