Inland Fisheries interviews with anglers

Inland Fisheries inspectors interviewed 3000 anglers last year. Of these 30% of anglers were bait fishing, 23% trolling, 22% spinning and 25% fly fishing, noting that some anglers use more than one method of fishing. A total of 2,028 fish were caught by these anglers; 1,714 (85%) were brown trout, 249 (12%) rainbow trout, 45 (2%) Atlantic salmon and 20 (1%) brook trout. More details will be found in the IFS Annual Report, which is out soon.
