Upgrade Coming For Loughs Agency eLicence Website

21st January 2020
Upgrade Coming For Loughs Agency eLicence Website

Anglers in the Foyle and Carlingford areas are advised that the Loughs Agency will soon launched an upgraded eLicence website that meets GDPR requirements and includes a number of improvements based on user feedback.

When the new site goes live, all anglers will need to create a password to access their account as an additional security method. If an angler does not yet have an email linked with their account, they should contact the Loughs Agency to update it.

Another change is the catch return section which has been amended to make it more user-friendly. Now angler can edit their catch return log should they make an error. Anglers can also copy catch return data for inputting similar multiple catches.

It is hoped that these changes will encourage more anglers to make their catch returns. For the 2019 season only 488 anglers have made their catch return ahead of the deadline today, Tuesday 21 January.

Anglers also noted they would like the ability to print their licence to carry with them when fishing. This function has been added and the printout includes a QR code that agency fishery officers can scan to quickly access the anglers licence data on the river bank.

Once the new site goes life, anglers with any issues accessing the eLicence website should contact the Loughs Agency at +44 (0) 2871 342100 for assistance. Team
