Armagh Fishing

The ancient art of fishing is said to date back at least 40,000 years and many techniques have been used such as hand gathering, spearing, netting, angling and trapping to catch the elusive fish.
According to FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) statistics, the total number of fishermen and fish farmers is estimated to be circa 38 million. And Armagh has its fair share.
Many of Armagh’s anglers do so as means of spending an afternoon by a river or lake, but clubs are available to join within the city, for those more competitive anglers.
One of Armagh’s clubs is Armagh and District angling Club, part of Armagh Fisheries Limited, which was formed in 1926 by an enthusiastic group of local anglers who recognized the potential to develop and manage game angling in the local Armagh area.
The club currently actively manage three lakes and keep them well stocked with brown trout and the more feisty rainbow trout from their own hatchery.
The Armagh area has many lakes and rivers that cater for both game and course fishing. Seagahan Dam is renowned as a hotspot for brown and rainbow trout while Loughgall Country Park is ideal for Course fishermen to catch carp, pike, roach and perch.
