Fish Stock Survey of Kindrum Lough, July 2021

Kindrum Lough is the most popular angling water in this area of the Fanad Peninsula, with access being
relatively good to a significant portion of the lake shore. O’ Reilly referred to “nice” trout being
present in Kindrum lake, which are taken mainly by spinning.

The lake was previously surveyed in 1992 confirming the presence of brown trout and Arctic char in the lake. This lake was surveyed in 2006 as part of the NSSHARE Fish in Lakes Project and in 2009, 2012 and 2015 as part of the Water Framework Directive surveillance monitoring programme. In all years brown trout was found to be the dominant species, followed by Arctic char, three-spined stickleback and eel.

This report summarises the results of the 2021 fish stock survey carried out on the lake using Inland Fisheries Ireland’s fish in lakes monitoring protocol. The protocol is WFD compliant and also provides insight into fish stock status in the lake.
