Report Illegal Fishing

We would encourage all water users including anglers to download our WaterWatch App for reporting illegal angling and incidents of pollution.  The app can help provide us with the information we need to make the appropriate response and sends an immediate report to the Inspector on call.

If you haven’t downloaded WaterWatch, please contact Loughs Agency to report an illegal fishing activity using  the 24hr response line telephone number Tel: +44 (0) 28 71 342100.

If you wish to report an incident of pollution or illegal fishing please provide us with detailed information on the location, your observations, when you made your observations and also leave your telephone number.

During normal office hours, your call will be answered by Loughs Agency staff. Outside normal office hours, your call will be dealt with through our automated telephone system.

Outside office hours and upon connection you will be advised to press 1 for emergencies that require immediate attention where you will be transferred to the duty Inspector. For non emergencies you will asked to press 2 to leave a message which will be picked up the following morning (or Monday if reported over the weekend).
