Where to fish?

Pettigo

There are numerous loughs surrounding the Pettigo area that contain mostly small rudd and perch that the adventurous angler may want to explore but the main fisheries of interest are given below.

Drumgun Lough

Drumgun Lough is situated 2 kilometres west of Pettigo and is 14.8 hectares in size. The lough holds good stocks of bream, hybrids, roach, rudd and perch and there are also brown trout present (fly fishing only). It is a well-established coarse fishery and regularly hosts angling competitions accommodating some 40 plus pegs. Access to this lough has been improved with the construction of a car park. Access to the car park is to the north of the R232 Pettigo to Laghy road with the car park situated along the south eastern shore of the lough. There is deep water close in to the southern shore to the east of the car park.
