This is a county overflowing with terrific lakes yet remains largely unexplored. Carrickmacross and Castleblayney are certainly popular and provide great mixed coarse fishing, but other centres well worth staying and fishing in, are Ballybay and Clones.

Carrickmacross has reed-fringed quiet lakes brimming with tench and rudd to three-mile long loughs loaded with prime roach. The smaller lakes tend to produce more large fish, with bream to 10lb, tench to 6lb and rudd to 3lb - there are even some carp in the area.

Castleblayney is a town with a lake twice its size. This is Lough Muckno and the fishing is consistently brilliant. A massive lake providing challenging sport from several very accessible stretches with stocks of bream, roach, hybrids, pike and perch. A huge amount of money has been invested here and Muckno now provides the best pleasure and match fishing access in Ireland. There are dozens more waters within a 10 mile radius. Lakeland Tackle in Castleblayney will supply good bait, tackle and information.
