The Great Pike Waters of Ireland
The River Moy Catchment
Although famous primarily as a game fishery, the Moy catchment also contains hidden treasures waiting to reveal themselves to the discerning coarse angler. In the Knock and Kiltimagh area, a handful of small and medium size loughs offer good angling for pike, perch, bream, rudd and tench. In 1995 and 1996 Kiltimagh played host to the national pike angling championships and competitors were surprised and delighted with the quality of angling experienced.
Loughs Derryhick and Levally Lake located in the Pontoon area, are quality pike angling venues where fish of fifteen to twenty pounds are caught regularly in the Manulla/Castlebar area, loughs such as Manulla, Washpool and Carrowmore hold pike to fifteen pounds while some of the smaller loughs on the Manulla river system such as Lakelands and even the diminutive Peenogue Lake and Cuiltybo Lough also hold quality pike.
Lakehill Pond, near Knock, holds specimen tench and Lough Naminoo near Balla holds excellent stocks of rudd to specimen weight. Eatons Lake also holds good stocks of coarse fish.
Carrowkeribly Lake between Ballina and Foxford has a healthy stock of pike, perch other coarse fish.
