The Rossinver Fishery Syndicate controls some of the best large lough fishing in Ireland. The Fishery owns approximately one third of Lough Melvin which is 13 km long and no more than 3 km wide.
All trout and char species are wild and the system has a good run of Atlantic salmon.
The season starts on February the first for salmon and the fifteenth of February for trout.
Within the fishery the south eastern bays of Rossinver and Eden are strictly reserved for fly fishing only. Trolling for salmon is permitted throughout the rest of the fishery. The lough has four kinds of trout which make it so unique.
