First view of river
You should be coming into view of the Erkina river. The Erkina is the second largest river in the Durrow area, flowing from the northwest past the village and then the castle, joining the Nore about one mile east of Durrow. The river has many deep pools and is good for fishing stocked trout, natural wild brown trout and pike.
All waters in the Durrow area require a permit. Fishing permits can be arranged by contacting the Durrow and District Angling Club's officer Michael Walsh, 18 Erkindale Drive, Durrow on (057) 9736437 or Lawlors Gala Shop, The Square, Durrow on (057) 8736234.
Durrow is a town with a rich angling culture. With five rivers within a mile of the town and Grantstown Lake located four miles away, the visiting angler is truly spoiled for choice. Typically the fishing season opens on March 1 and runs until September 30 each year, though in recent years the season has opened later. Please check with the Angling Club's officer about the season dates each year.
