Fishery Information

Lakeland Fishery is a premier commercial fishery set in 15 acres in the heart of Ireland’s Lakeland. The complex offers 85 pegs for all weather fishing and angling, even when many venues on the River Shannon are inaccessible due to fluctuating water levels. The venue is owned by Derek Rowley, an Irish international angler, who ensures the fish are well taken care of and the stock levels are regularly checked. The fishery is home to several species including carp, big hybrids, tench, and bream.

What size do the fish go to?

The carp at Lakeland Fishery have grown into specimen fish, regularly being caught in excess of 30lb. The Tench are found in small shoals and can provide an energetic fight once hooked. Bream in this fishery can reach double figures, while match weights have been known to exceed 160lb+.

What tactics work well?

For Carp, strong angling equipment is recommended due to their size and strength. Rudd are essentially surface feeders and are shy, so tackle should be kept light. Bream are usually found in large shoals in deep, slow or still water, and tend to be cautious feeders. Tench are bottom dwellers and can be hooked with tackle that is fairly strong. Hybrids are hard-fighting and well worth pursuing. Perch are sedentary, and larger Perch are solitary predators.

What facilities are on site?

The fishery provides angling tuition for novice or young anglers, and a well-stocked tackle shop supplies all the bait and tackle required for every species. There are also toilets on site for angler convenience. Fishermen have to book into the lodge before commencing to fish.

Is parking available?

The information provided does not mention specific parking facilities. However, given the size and nature of the fishery, it would be reasonable to expect that parking is available. You may want to check with the venue directly for details on parking availability.
