Pike and Coarse Angling in the locality
The Boyne Valley Fishery offers excellent opportunities for the coarse angler especially in Virginia and Bailieboro to the north-west, Collinstown and Delvin to the West and Enfield and Edenderry to the south-west. Limited coarse angling subject to certain conditions is also available in the off-season, on a small number of game waters controlled by Angling Associations on the River Boyne. There is something to suit every coarse angler in the Boyne Valley Fishery and the main species include pike, perch, bream, roach, rudd, hybrids, tench, carp, and eels.
These waters are generally under-utilised and can provide excellent sport for the visiting angler. generally there are no license or permit requirements for coarse fishing on these waters and generally the fishing is free. There are however a number of coarse angling laws with which the visiting angler should become familiar.
