The following fishing options are available:
Pike fishing: Irish pike fight exceptionally hard and grow quite large in these waters. Double figure pike are quite common and every year we boat numerous 20lbs.+ fish and specimen pike over 30lbs. are always a real possibility! We strictly practice “Catch & Release” with all pike caught.
Trout fishing: During the season (March to September), we offer fly-fishing trips for wild Irish brown trout on both lakes and rivers. We also offer lure fishing and trolling trips for the larger predatory Ferox trout on some lakes.
Perch fishing: This often-overlooked predator inhabits most Irish waters and can provide great sport on light tackle. Using finesse methods such as Drop-shotting and vertical jigging great catches can be made.
Fly-fishing: We offer fly-fishing for both trout and pike.
We can provide all necessary tackle for any of the above fishing trips.
Of course you can bring your own gear too and should you wish to stock up on some more gear, Toomans tackle shop beside the Bridge in Carrick is a well stocked shop that should have everything you need.
We offer full day trips (8hrs.) and half-day trips.
We can pick you up in any Hotel, B&B, or other accommodation in Carrick and surrounding area or simply meet you at the boat jetty in Carrick on Shannon.
If you are planning your trip from abroad, why not ask for one of our bespoke angling packages.
Let us help you catch the BIG ONE!
