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 one of the larger lakes in the region with excellent fishing spots. It offers ample shore fishing and boat fishing opportunities with several access points around the lake. Fish for bream, roach, perch, pike, and hybrids. The River Shannon flows through Leitrim and provides excellent fishing for pike, perch, roach, and bream. There are many stretches along the river where you can find good fishing spots. Carrick-on-Shannon is a well-known town for anglers targeting the river.

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. A popular destination for match anglers and hosts several fishing competitions.

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.

Lough Rynn is known for its tranquil setting and abundant tench and is a popular choice among coarse anglers. The lake is accessible and provides good fishing from both the shore and boats for tench, bream, roach, rudd, and perch. Kiltybarden Lake is another smaller lake in a peaceful setting with fishing for tench, bream, roach and perch.

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 typically the best times for coarse fishing as fish are more active and feeding.
