Temporary Suspension of Fishing

I really can’t believe that I have to put this on our website but it is a sign of the times we live in.

Omagh Anglers Association have now put a temporary suspension on club waters due to the extreme heat and prevailing low water conditions. we will notify of any change as soon as possible. Club permit holders are asked to use common sense and refrain from angling in such conditions. Fish caught in such environmental conditions have an extremely high mortality rate and are unlikely to survive

We have been working already in conjunction with the Loughs Agency and we had asked and received the deployment of their aeration equipment on the River Strule in known spots where the water temperature had risen to over 25 degrees and where the oxygen levels are low. Of course the rivers are to vast to cover all areas but we are attempting to do our best. These were asked for on Thursday past and the Loughs Agency had them on site on Friday morning.

Keep fingers crossed for a marked reduction in temperature and some very heavy rain!!
