Fishing Locations Available In The Area:

  Some of The Fishing In The Area  
  The North Western Region is, undoubtedly, one of Europe's top angling destinations and is considered by many as a salmon fishing paradise. What follows are detailed information on some of the nearby fishing locations.  
     
  Glencar Lake and Valley  
  This lovely lough, south-east of Benbulben, is approximately 2 miles long by ½ mile wide. Situated in a deep valley to the north of the N16 Manorhamilton-Sligo road, 7 miles from Manorhamilton, it has a spectacular waterfall at its north-east corner. The lough has a resident stock of small brown trout and gets a really good run of sea trout and a fair number of salmon, both spring fish and grilse. The average size of the sea trout is quite big – over 1½lb – and local anglers claim that the lough produces the largest average size of sea trout in the west of Ireland. The best trout taken in recent years weighed 6½lb and the best salmon was 22lb. The fish are very free-rising, especially when fresh, and favourite fly patterns are Cahill, Green Peter, Mayfly, Teal & Yellow, Daddy, Watson’s Fancy, Black Gnat and Bibio. The lough has a good hatch of mayfly, olives and sedges. Sea trout take the natural flies quite freely, and particularly well during the mayfly hatch. The southern shore is deep, the northern shore shallow and shelving. The latter shoreline, the western shore, and the eastern end of the lough are favourite fishing areas. This lough fishes best in a west or south-west wind. This lough, lying in the shadow of famed Benbulben, with its wooded shoreline, waterfall and islands at either end, is well worth a visit.  
     
  Lough Melvin  
  Lough Melvin, 8 miles long by nearly 2 miles wide, is by far the most important salmon and trout fishery in the north-west. It straddles the border: its north –eastern corner, from near Dernaseer Pier to the County Bridge, is in Northern Ireland, while the major portion of the lough lies in Co Leitrim.. This lake is approximately 5 miles from Manorhamilton on the Rossinver to Garrison. Road. The angling activities around the lough are centered mainly at Kinlough, Garrison and Rossinver.

The most important salmon and trout lake in the North-West of Ireland, Lough Melvin has four species of trout - brown, sonaghan, gilaroo, ferox. Because there has been no re-stocking of the lake the trout here are wily and fierce fighters. Spring salmon are taken on the fly in March and April in Rossinver Bay, while the grilse run, which begins in June, takes place all over the lake. Competitions are held regularly from May to the end of September.
 
     
  River Drowes  
  The River Drowes is among the earliest opening salmon fisheries in the country and regularly claims the honour of producing Ireland’s first salmon of the season on opening day, January 1st.The river is approx 15 minutes drive from Manorhamilton on the Bundoran Road. The Drowes is some 5 miles in length, with over 70 named pools, flowing from Lough Melvin at Lareen Bay and entering the sea at Tullaghan, just outside Bundoran. The Drowes has a wide variety of water suitable for all fishing methods, including several miles of good fly water and deeper slower moving pools suitable for spinning and bait fishing. The fishery is based at Lareen Estate, where the river flows from Lough Melvin. There is a fishery office and tackle shop on the estate from where fishing permits and licences are available and boats and engines may be hired.  
     
  Aerial View Of Glenade Lake  
  Glenade Lake, Nestling in Glenade (from the Irish "Glen of Jealousy") valley, half way between Kinlough and Manorhamilton, Glenade Lake, though small, offers good coarse fishing amid spectacular scenery. All around are the towering peaks of the Dartry range of mountains. In its waters are char and perch which will challenge any angler. The lake has its own monster legend. A poem tells the story of the Dobharcu (pronounced "Dowarcoo") which, with its mate, emerged from the depths centuries ago to bring tragedy to the area. We know of no recent sightings, but who knows what might emerge from the lake's placid waters one day! Glenade Lake: R280, Bundoran Road from Manorhamilton. This lake has boat access on the Manorhamilton side and fishing is free.
