Fish Stock Survey of Dunglow Lough, August 2021

The lake holds a good stock of small, wild brown trout which has historically been augmented by regularly stocking larger brown trout into the lake. There was also additional stocking of rainbow trout up to 680g in previous years. In an effort to regenerate the sea trout population, the Rosses Anglers Association discontinued their stocking policy in 2006.

Dunglow Lough was previously surveyed in 1996. Since then the lake has been surveyed on four occasions (2006, 2009, 2012 and 2015) . Brown trout were the dominant species recorded on all sampling occasion between 1996 and 2015. Sea-trout and eels were also recorded.

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.
