Fishing in Co Cavan

Cavan’s abundant waterways and diverse fish populations make it a top destination for anglers. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a beginner, the lakes and rivers of Cavan offer a rewarding fishing experience. Bream, hybrids, roach, rudd and tench are common in most waters. The River Erne and its main tributaries, the Shannon Erne Waterway and the Dromore/Annalee system dominate the middle of the county.

The River Erne System is the major water in this scenic county linking lots of lakes both large and small. Good access to many waters whilst there are still lakes that take some effort to access that are rarely fished. The River Erne will fish well in the cooler months where there is depth and flow. A tributary of the River Erne, the Annalee is known for its trout fishing. It’s a beautiful river with plenty of access points.

The Shannon-Erne Waterway offers a diverse and rich fishing experience with its interconnected lakes, rivers, and canals. Approximately 63km in length it connects the River Shannon in Leitrim with the River Erne in Fermanagh and features a series of rivers, lakes, and canals, with various connecting lakes and rivers. Ballyconnell is located on a central spot on the waterway with good access points and facilities. The town itself provides amenities for anglers.

For the angler seeking large open waters with the promise of outstanding bags of bream and roach choose the large lakes such as Gowna, Oughter, Sillan, Upper Lough Erne and Lough McNean. For something more secluded you will find many smaller lakes and river stretches with plenty of fish. There is a water here to suit all tastes.

Lough Oughter is a large and complex lake system with many bays and inlets. Great for both coarse and pike fishing. Lough Gowna is another vast lake system shared with County Longford, it offers excellent coarse fishing, especially in the summer months, for bream, roach, hybrids, perch, and pike. Garadice Lake has excellent fishing for bream, roach, hybrids, perch and pike from both the shore and boats. It is also a popular spot for match fishing events. Kiltybarden Lake offers a more peaceful fishing experience with abundant tench and bream.

Spring and Summer are the prime time for coarse fishing, with fish being more active in warmer waters. Pike fishing can be particularly productive during colder months. Wherever you fish in Ireland, the chances of catching fish are hugely improved by pre-baiting to attract fish into your chosen swim. Ideally this is done the evening before (or for a couple of days) using breadcrumb or local maize meal carrying particle baits such as sweetcorn, boiled wheat, hemp and pellets. Early morning and late evening are generally more productive as fish tend to feed more actively during these times.
