The Board has become aware that high levels of poaching are currently taking place along the river, particularly from Clohamon to Tullow. The poachers are using worms, which is currently forbidden and fish are being killed. With the high majority of anglers fishing legally, and returning all fish, it is infuriating to know that there are a small number of fisherman showing a total disregard for the law.  We would encourage anglers to immediately report any incidence of poaching they witness to IFI and also copy any reports to The Slaney River Trust (secretary@slaneyrivertrust.ie) IFI can be contacted on 1890347424 (24 hours a day – for Pollution and Poaching).
