Fishing in Co Clare

The East Clare Lakelands offer some of the best coarse fishing opportunities in Ireland, with more than 40 loughs and numerous rivers teeming with rich stocks of tench, bream, rudd, roach, perch and pike. Known for its tranquil setting, Lough Graney is a prime spot for coarse fishing. The lake is surrounded by scenic countryside and is relatively quiet with stocks of bream, roach, tench, perch and pike. Another smaller, serene lake ideal for anglers seeking a quiet fishing experience is Lough Bridget. It has good shore access and is well-stocked with bream, roach, tench and perch.

Spanning counties Clare, Tipperary, and Galway, Lough Derg is the third-largest lake in Ireland. Approximately 40km in length and up to 13km wide this lake has numerous bays, inlets and islands. Expect to catch bream, skimmers, roach, hybrids, tench, perch and pike. Pike fishing on Derg is outstanding with lots of big fish to be had. Areas with plenty of weed beds and drop-offs such as Scarriff Bay, Portumna and Dromineer are excellent spots for pike fishing. Access on foot is restricted along the northern shoreline and that’s a pity because the standard of fishing can be excellent. Bank fishing space can be found at the various cruiser marinas around the lake.

On the Tipperary side of the lough the best fishing is at Garrykennedy, Dromineer and Terryglass. On the County Clare side there is good mixed fishing at Scarriff and Mountshannon. Boat hire on Derg will open up a huge amount of coarse fishing access. Use boats for pre-baiting and accessing the remote but productive shoreline. Several marinas offer boat hire services.

A change of scene and fishing is provided by the Lower River Shannon at O'Brien's Bridge. The river sections close to Lough Derg are productive for coarse fishing. The slow-moving waters are ideal for targeting bream and roach.

The East Clare Lakelands offer a rich and varied fishing experience in a stunning natural setting. Whether you’re targeting bream in the calm waters of a secluded lake or hunting for pike in the expansive Lough Derg, the East Clare Lakelands provide a rewarding and peaceful fishing adventure. Tackle shops are available in nearby towns such as Portumna, Killaloe, Scarriff and Ennis all offering bait, tackle and local advice.

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.
