Toomebridge Eel Fishery

Toomebridge eel fishery at is situated just a little downstream from where the River Bann leaves Lough Neagh on it's journey to the Atlantic Ocean. The Fishery is located between the old and new Bridges at Toomebridge.

Eels unlike salmon, don’t reproduce in freshwater and instead travel from Lough Neagh, all the way to the Sargasso sea between Bermuda and Puerto Rico. The fishery at Toomebridge have trapper boxes set and ready for a good catch as they migrate downstream to the sea.
