Lough Currane


Co. Kerry, Ireland

Fishery Information

Lough Currane, also known as Loch Luíoch or Lough Leeagh, is located in County Kerry, Ireland. The picturesque village of Waterville lies on its western bank, while Raheen adorns its southern bank. This notable lake, situated close to the Atlantic Ocean, stretches over 2,500 acres and measures 3.5 miles long and 2 miles wide at the broadest point. It is part of a complex of lakes famous for their sea trout fishing, and it can be accessed via the N70 from either the north or the south.

What size do the fish go to?

Lough Currane is celebrated for its prolific sea trout and salmon population. The lake regularly produces specimen sea trout, some of which reach over 10 lb. (4.5 kg). From June, a large number of smaller sea trout, known locally as ‘Juners’ and comparable to the Scottish Finnock, can be found in the lake.

What tactics work well?

The prime sea trout fishing season on Lough Currane runs from April to September, with the larger fish commonly caught between April and June. Trolling with shallow diving lures is particularly effective in the early season, but many fish are caught on the fly throughout the season. Popular fishing locations include Black Point, Church Island, Reenaskinna Rock, and Rough Island. Although boat fishing tends to yield the best results, sea trout can also be caught from the shore.
