    THE EANYWATER FISHERY

    The Eanywater Fishery is a spate river

    fishery and forms a part of the 125 km

    2

    Eany catchment area comprising the Eany

    River, the lower reaches of the Eanymore

    River and the lower reaches of the Eanybeg

    River.

    The Eany River itself is a 5km stretch of

    water beginning at the confluence of the

    Eanymore and Eanybeg rivers just upstream

    of Ballymacahil Bridge and flows into Inver

    Bay.

    The Eanymore is a 10km stretch of river

    starting at the confluence of the Sruell

    and Eglish Rivers. It is generally fished

    on the 7km stretch of the lower reaches

    developed by Inland Fisheries Ireland, from

    Ballymacahil to Drumboarty (Dummies)

    Bridge.

    The Eanybeg is a 16km stretch of river that

    rises in the west of the Blue Stack Hills and

    is usually fished along the 3km stretch of

    developed river on the lower reaches.

    Access to the fishery is good with numerous

    stiles, walkways and footbridges having

    been installed along the rivers.

    ACCOMMODATIONThere are various accommodation providers in the area. For accommodation information/bookings, the following websites may be of use:

    COUNTRY CODEAnglers should ensure that gates are closed and that fences are not broken or damaged. Care should be taken with crops and livestock. Litter must not be discarded and no fires are allowed. Vehicles should be parked in designated areas and in such a manner that they do not cause obstruction.

    BIOSECURITYAquatic Invasive Species and fish pathogens are readily transferred from one watercourse to another on angling tackle, boats and protective clothing. These can be very damaging to resident fish stocks, the aquatic habitat and the general environment. We would ask that all anglers inspect and clean their gear prior to fishing on the Eany if that gear has previously been used on another fishery.

    Full information on prevention of invasive species is available on our website at: http://www.fisheriesireland.ie/Research/invasive-species.html Or via Invasive Species Ireland at http://invasivespeciesireland.com/cops/water-users/anglers/
