Catch returns on all species in Omagh Anglers waters are mandatory from the 2019 Season onwards!
As an Association we have no figures to combat pollution incidents or how many salmon /trout are being caught in our waters and from this season onwards, compulsory catch returns are going to have to be made by all members. This was highlighted at the AGM in February 2019. From the returns made in 2018 806 salmon were caught and 593 were returned. 2991 trout were caught and 2856 were returned.36 seatrout were caught with 24 returned and 500 rainbow trout were caught and thankfully only 62 of these were returned!
We tried a voluntary scheme six years ago but unfortunately it was unsuccessful.
The new permits will be issued this year with space for catch returns on them and extra pages will be available from Andersons and also from this website (see the section on returns for extra pages).
From the close of the season there will be 25 days in which to make your return and nil returns must be made.
The final date by which returns can be made is the 15th November.
If a member does not make a return, then they will forfeit their licence for the next year. A late return will incur a charge.
Returns can be made via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on the returns form located on the physical permit and are to be posted back to the Clubs PO Box, Omagh Anglers Association PO Box 92, BT78 9AX. or there is a private box in CA Andersons where they can be left.
