Fishery Information

Craigmore Trout Fishery is a five-acre, natural spring-fed lake located in the beautiful countryside of County Antrim, with scenic views overlooking Lough Neagh. It is only a 20-minute drive from Belfast and the International Airport and 30 minutes from Larne Harbour. The fishery is stocked on a regular basis with quality rainbow trout and has a bait pond on site with worms available.

What size do the fish go to?

Specific sizes of the fish are not provided, but the lake is stocked with quality rainbow trout that are known to be hard-fighting due to the abundance of natural food sources.

What tactics work well?

Historically, Craigmore has seen substantial hatches of buzzers, lake olives, and damsel nymphs. Corixa and freshwater shrimp are also in abundance throughout the year.

The abundance of natural food sources allows the rainbow trout to become hard-fighting, providing an exciting fishing experience.
