Coarse fishing in the South West

Coarse angling in the south west of Ireland is centred on the River Lee system and anglers are required to buy a permit to fish on the central sections of the system (Inniscarra and Carrigadrohid lakes). Permit fees are very affordable with the revenue being reinvested in the fishery for the benefit of anglers.

Inniscarra is host to a number of international competitions this area offers excellent bream, rudd, bream-rudd hybrid angling.

Lough Allua and Curraghalickey lakes are also developing into premier coarse fisheries and offer the coarse angler excellent fishing for Bream, Rudd, hybrids and Pike.

Inniscarra Lake & The Lee Reservoirs

Good general coarse fishing and fine competition stretches on well signposted access to this reservoir. The fishery is owned by the Electricity Supply Board (ESB) and an ESB permit is required to fish. Many excellent festivals are held on these lakes. All angling methods work for bream, hybrids, roach, rudd and perch. Permits and an angling brochure are available from the South Western Regional Fisheries Board.
