There are abundant stocks of Pike, Bream, Tench, Rudd, Roach, Perch and Hybrids in most waters around East Clare, while Wild Brown Trout fishing is available in Lough Derg and in some of the remote hillside lakes. Most waters are very accessible with car parking close by, and purpose-built fishing stands have been erected on some lakes to provide greater ease of access and more comfortable fishing.

Lough Derg stretches between Killaloe in Co Clare and Portumna in Co Galway and is the largest lake on the River Shannon. It’s a natural mixed fishery offering superb angling, primarily for indigenous Wild Brown Trout, Large Pike and Coarse Fish.

The northern half of the lake features headlands and islands, surrounded by the natural beauty of rural countryside, while the southern end is much more dramatic as its deep waters flow between the Slieve Bearnagh and Arra Mountain Ranges. There is plenty of natural access for shore fishing, while fishing for Bream is well noted from the fishing stands – suitable for disabled anglers – at Twomilegate, near Killaloe.

OPEN SEASON: March 15th – September 30th

While the season opens in March, the highlight of the angling year is undoubtedly during the Mayfly season in late April/May when all fishermen take to the lake in search of the famous Wild Brown Trout.!!!

Lough Derg is very suitable for Wet & Dry Fly Fishing, Dapping, Trolling and Spinning.

Lough Graney, one of the largest lakes in East Clare, is a beautiful scenic lake with some islands and surrounded by hills on both sides. It’s set between Caher and Flagmount and is about 20 minutes drive north west from Clareville House. It rises in the bleak heights of the Slieve Augthy Mountains and flows into the River Shannon at Scariff.

Although it has some stretches of easily accessible shoreline and a beautiful sandy beach at its northern end,  the lake is more popular for boat fishing – some would say a boat is essential !!!. Good stocks of huge Pike, Perch, Roach, Bream and large Ferox Trout. Car Parking, Slipways and Fishing Stands.

Lough Atorick is a small lake situated in the mountains north-east of Flagmount with large stocks of medium sized Trout. Access is good, with a slipway where boats can be launched.
