Abstract: Available indicators describe 1986 as a poor year for sea trout catches, the reason for this being depleted stocks. A brief growing season contributed to a poor recruitment; runs out of Burrishoole were low and the Waterville catch contained few post-smolt (finnock). While, on the commercial licence returns submitted to the Department, the salmon catch held up to the levels reported in 1985, draft net caught sea trout were fewer. Reports from Fishery Boards suggest catches were about a quarter lower in 1986 than in the previous year. Their report s are corroborated by the rod licence return s which indicate there was a slight rise in the aver age weight of sea trout caught, consistent with a reduced finnock run, and that there was a reduced yield per rod day .
