Shreelane Lake, Skibbereen, West Cork.

This sheltered and peaceful lake is a summer rainbow trout fishery known locally as “Shepperton”. Large Pike also inhabit these waters as proved in the winter 2007/8 with many 20 plus fish and a 27 pounder all still growing! Spinning and fly are both popular with Tim Rule, UK having a 23lb fish on fly.

Shreelane Pike Fisherman

Two good lake boats and outboards are available and numbers are very limited.

Groups, corporate days or enthusiasts of any shade are welcome to book the waters exclusively for their enjoyment.

Shreelane Lake is near to Skibbereen with its bars and restaurants and is a most welcoming place to visit. The Gulf Stream effect gives this corner of West Cork its mild winters and combined with its sheltered disposition is the perfect winter fishery.

The fishery will be open from October to end of March yearly and if you have never fought a big Pike then its time you did just that. Assistance and advice available by arrangement. Please note that bait fishing is not permitted as this is a catch & release fishery.
