Lough Derg is a lake of two parts with the northern half featuring headlands and islands surrounded by rural countryside, hills, woodlands and farmlands. The southern end is much more dramatic, almost 30m at its deepest, as the waters cut between Slieve Bernagh and Arra Mountains.
The lake is a natural mixed fishery offering superb angling primarily for pike and coarse fish but with a modest stock of wild brown trout. Shoals of big bream, tench, rudd, roach and perch roam its depths and these can be fished for from an anchored boat.
Considering its length, there is comparatively little bank space except for the fishing stands at Twomilegate, near Killaloe. Bank fishing space will be found at the various cruiser marinas around the lake.
On the Tipperary side of the lakes the best fishing is at Garrykennedy, Dromineer and Terryglass. On the County Clare side there is good mixed fishing at Scarriff and Mountshannon.
