Our Fisheries

Since being founded in 1929, DTAA has acquired rights for members to fish on some of the best trout fisheries around Dublin. These include Poulaphouca (Blessington Lakes), Bohernabreena reservoirs, several stretches of the Liffey, and the Kings River. Check our fisheries section for maps and access details.


Please check the membership link to find out how to join DTAA or contact our membership secretary directly: DTAAmembership (at) gmail.com. New members are most welcome. We have reduced rates for young adults (18-25) and juveniles (under 18) can join at no cost with an adult member. Young people are the future of DTAA and so we encourage you to consider joining DTAA and experiencing fly fishing (a healthy, enjoyable, exciting and sustainable pass-time).

Juvenile Angling

Though we have missed the last few years, we intend to hold a youth angling event this Summer. This will be a half day of angling, fun, learning, barbecue and prizes… a family day out. Stay tuned.


We have an active calendar of social competitions each season fished on the Liffey, Bohernabreena, Poulaphouca, Lough Lene, Lough Owel and Lough Conn.
