Fishing in Co Leitrim
Leitrim has an abundance of rich lakes holding healthy stocks of prime tench, roach, rudd, bream, hybrids, pike and perch. Water shapes the county with the Erne system to the east, the River Shannon to the west and the Shannon-Erne Waterway, which meanders through the very heart of Leitrim.

Lough Allen is a large lake that offers a variety of fishing opportunities, including trout, salmon, perch and pike. There are several access points around the lake. In early spring the bream congregates in Wynne’s Bay and make easy pickings. For the rest of the year there are plenty of roach and hybrids to be caught on any method from all access points.

The River Shannon provides excellent fishing for pike, perch, roach, and bream. There are many stretches along the river where you can find good fishing spots.

Situated near the town of Ballinamore, Garadice Lake is a massive water covering 12,000 acres and about 100 swims that you can drive to at Haughton’s Shore, Church Shore, Creamer’s Shore and Connolly’s Shore. All angling methods and baits will work, though a groundbait feeder with worm, corn and casters will get the bigger fish. Expect bream, skimmers, roach, hybrids, tench, pike and perch.

Town Lake, near Carrigallen is a 40-acre lake with a good depth of water around seven meters in some areas and has been stocked with bream to 11lb. Most anglers head for the car park comfortable platforms beside the Church to catch tench and mostly roach on pole or feeder. However, there have often been nice nets of bream and tench from the roadside, facing the platforms. Some serious catches are made by anglers concentrating on the same swims for a couple of days.

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.
