Loughs Agency have re-launched their dedicated angling website www.ufishireland.org with a completely new look and a lot more features!
The new site contains even more information for both local and visiting anglers. Besides including essential advice, rules and regulations it also provides access to purchase a Loughs Agency rod e-licence. Interactive maps of each river in the Foyle and Carlingford catchments allow the web user to see where the best spots are to park to access the river and where the nearest tackle shops are.
Angling club boundaries are also clearly marked with details on how to buy a day or season ticket. If there is a river gauge or camera these are also clearly marked so the angler can see what the conditions are from their smartphone, tablet of computer. Each lough that is open to the public, as well as stocked lakes, are also included with details on opening times, contact details and permissible methods.
Anglers can refer to tide tables, lunar phases, sunrise/sunset times and weather forecasts for both the Carlingford and Foyle catchments to help plan their trip. More real-time data will be available in the future to provide the angler with river level, water temperature, turbidity and rainfall information.
It’s not just game anglers that are catered for, as coarse venues and shore marks for saltwater anglers are also included.
The information within the website will expand and change as more surveys are carried out. More exciting features are also planned for the near future. Loughs Agency is also committed to providing an e-permit solution for its stakeholders. This will allow the visiting angler to purchase their day or season tickets without the need to visit a distributor in person, or react to conditions and purchase permits to fish alternate beats from the riverbank.
