Cloone Lake is located to the west of Gowna village on an offshoot of the road to Dernaferst. Boats can be launched here giving access to the entirety of the northern basin of Lough Gowna. This area is generally shallow with sparse marginal vegetation in the bays and other features such as small islands. Pike angling pressure in this area is low and many bays yet remain to be explored. The area off the point of the peninsula to the left of the car park has some deeper water that generally holds shoals of fodder fish and pike are usually present. Bank fishing is limited in this area and the use of a boat is advised.
