It has become one of Irelands most popular salmon lakes for early season spring fish and grilse.
The fly collection in this section contains just some of the patterns that are succesful on Carrowmore throughout the fishing year..We will be updating this section with more information on the lake and the flies used there as we go through the 2018 season.
Lough Carra is the largest marl lake in Ireland and is part of the Great Western Lakes complex. It covers 1,560 hectares and is joined to Lough Mask by the Keel River. It has many islands and a ragged shoreline with a plethora of bays and promontories, all on a bedrock of limestone.
Lough Carra became famous in the angling community as a top rate, wild brown trout fishery where the trout were free-rising and massive hatches of mayfly, olives and sedges provided the fly fisherman with some of the best opportunities to carry out the traditional techniques of lough-style trout fishing. Unfortunately, changes in the ecology of the lake caused by modern, intensive agriculture in the catchment have resulted in a significant decline in the quality of the trout fishing. The Angling section provides limited information on catch statistics (which will be added to as further historical data are processed), a summary of the current regulations and a map showing some of the features of relevance to anglers.
Lough Corrib is located in Galway, the west of Ireland. The River Corrib or Galway river connects the lake to the sea at Galway. It is the largest lake in the Republic of Ireland and second largest on the island of Ireland (after Lough Neagh). It covers 176 km² and lies mostly in County Galway with a small area of its northeast corner in County Mayo.
The first canal on the island of Ireland was cut in the 12th century. Known as the Friar's Cut, it allowed boats to pass from Lough Corrib to the sea at Galway.
Lough Corrib was designated a Ramsar site on 16 June 1996. It has also been designated a Special Area of Conservation.
The fly collection in this section contains just some of the patterns that are succesful on Lough Corrib throughout the fishing year..We will be updating this section with more information on the lake and the flies used there as we go through the 2018 season.

Despite serious pollution issues in the 1980's and early 1990's the lake has made a remarkable recovery and today is back again as one of the premier wild brown trout fisheries in Ireland.
