Upper Lough MacNean is an excellent coarse fishing lake. The lake contains Bream, Roach, Hybrids, Pike, Perch and Eels. A small stock of Brown Trout is also present. There is little or no walking involved and the water at Glenfarne Forest can be fished almost out of the car.
The lake is really consistent and has a reputation for fishing well in flood. Recent improvements (carried out by local voluntary effort) including a fishing stand adapted to the needs of disabled anglers make this an ideal venue for anglers with limited mobility.
