Fish Stock Survey of Kiltooris Lough, August 2021

Kiltooris Lough is reputed to be one of the best trout lakes in the Ardara area. The lake has a sandy bottom with trout averaging 0.34kg up to 0.68kg. The Ardara Anglers Association has the fishing rights to the lake and has stocked it in the past with brown trout. The lake is also a public water supply.

The lake has been surveyed on four occasions since 2005 (2005, 2008, 2011 and 2014). Brown trout have dominated fish stocks on all recent survey occasions. Three-spined stickleback and eels were also captured during those surveys.

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.
