Fishing in Ireland

Co. Offaly - Mid Shannon

This county offers a real mixture of fishing and a variety of waters that is staggering. Many anglers will agree that Edenderry has the very best canal fishing, while elsewhere the River Shannon and its tributaries dominate.

Banagher offers very accessible fishing on the Shannon network at such famous spots as Meelick Weir, Bullock Island, Salmon Run and for a more restful session you can try the Grand Canal. There are spring and autumn angling festivals that have exposed the brilliant sport to be had with prime roach, hybrids, specimen tench and big bream.

Canal fishing can be found on the picturesque reed fringed Grand Canal, most of which is accessible by car and full of fish. Around Edenderry you will find the waterway is alive with tench, bream, rudd, perch and increasing numbers of roach and small carp.

Shannonbridge, a small town, which sits astride the River Shannon, has plenty of quality fishing and some exciting backwaters. It is a sensible central base for those anglers who enjoy exploring a number of waters. Shannon Harbour has exciting fishing on the Shannon, several backwaters and the Brosna River, plus an interesting section of the Grand Canal.

The western shores of Derg are noted for big bream and hybrid shoals and good pike fishing. Access is restricted and boat hire opens up a lot more fishing access.
