The Guide to Where to Fish in Southern Ireland (Eire)
The Rivers Dee and Glyde.
The Dee and Glyde Fishing Development Association control fishing on these two rivers. Sadly both are on the closed list for salmon fishing however both rivers hold good stocks of trout. The Dee rises in Co Cavan and flows 30 miles to the sea at Annagassan. A fertile river, the Dee has good fly life including Mayflies, olives and sedges. The Glyde is slightly longer at 35 miles. Day tickets are available from tackle shops in Dundalk and Drogheda.
