(This note is not part of the Byelaws.)
These Byelaws designate a number of waters as rainbow trout waters for the purposes of Byelaw 76 of the Fisheries Byelaws (Northern Ireland) 1997 which provides that there shall be no close season for angling for rainbow trout in waters so designated. They also designate a further section of the Lower River Bann as a coarse fishery on which a coarse fishing rod licence is valid.
These Byelaws differ from the previous Byelaws in that Lough Coolyermer, County Fermanagh and Rectory View Trout Fishery, County Tyrone have been designated as Rainbow Trout Waters, and the section of the Lower River Bann, from immediately upstream of the Bann Bridge at Kilrea for approximately 300 metres to a line across the River from the southwesternmost end of Kilrea Wood where the existing tow path reaches a hedge, has been designated as a coarse fishery.
