Garty Lough (Town Lake)
With the exception of Lough Gowna, Garty Lough is the largest lake associated with these two angling centres. This medium sized lake covers an area of approximately 83 hectares and is located at the end of the main street in Arvagh, Co. Cavan. This is a reasonably shallow lake with the deeper areas located off the eastern shoreline. The northern and western shorelines are reed fringed and the southern and eastern shores are open and rocky. Pike in excess of 20lbs have been recorded from this water and fish in excess of 10lbs are taken regularly. All legitimate methods work on this water with lures and trolled dead baits on the oar being effective. There is a slipway for launching boats at the end of the town but car parking is limited in this area. Cars should be parked so that they do not cause obstruction and ample parking is available on the main street of the town.
