Angling



Antrim & Newtownabbey offers some of the most exciting game and coarse fishing in Northern Ireland and it is not unknown for anglers to ‘get hooked’ on our fisheries and scenic rivers. Whether you’re a keen angler or a novice wanting to while away a few hours, our Borough is the perfect place to indulge your passion.

The Borough is renowned for its great rivers and streams, teeming with wild brown trout, salmon and dollaghan. The mysterious and powerful dollaghan are migratory brown trout which, around midsummer, enter the rivers from Lough Neagh to spawn. These trout are highly prized and can grow to specimen size.

The area also offers still water fishing, where you can pursue some hard-fighting rainbow trout, or if you prefer, our rivers and lakes also offer some superb coarse fishing. Our coastal location means we can even offer some sea fishing on Belfast Lough during the summer months.
