River Lee

This prolific river drains a catchment of 484 square miles of which much is taken up by two large reservoirs. Salmon Angling is confined to an 8 mile stretch from Inniscarra dam to Cork city.

The season runs from February until September with the best time of year from June to September.

Inniscarra Fishery

This salmon fishery is located between Cork City and the dam at Inniscarra (9 miles). The fishery is run by the ESB (Electricity Supply Board) and an ESB permit is required. There is a fair run of fish with a very good grilse run dependent on water. All legal angling methods are allowed subject to the rules of the particular fisheries.

The upper Lee is closed to salmon fishing.
