Fishing Rod For Stay
Fish for Wild Brown Trout in Spelga Dam with fishing licence.
Spelga Dam reservoir is open to Department of Agriculture permit holders. This is a very popular fishery in the summer months (March to October). The fish do not run large, but there are plenty of them, and provide good fun on a small Mepps, or on the fly.
Northern Ireland’s longest river, the Bann rises in the Mournes above Spelga Reservoir, flows down through Hilltown to Banbridge, Portadown and into Lough Neagh and then to the Atlantic Ocean at Portstewart. Bag limit: 3 fish per day (Brown Trout Jul/Aug), 2 Salmon per day (Aug/Sep)
