Carrownisky

This is a short spate river and is situated three miles from Louisburgh. The lower reaches of the river are characterised by long flat stretches, and before entering the sea it flows into Roonagh Lough, which is tidal.

There are runs of salmon and sea trout into the Carrowniskey from June onwards, and Roonagh Lough offers fishing for both, either by fly or by dapping. It is mainly fly-fishing, but there is some worm and spinning allowed over certain stretches. The use of shrimp is not allowed.

Part of the river is owned by the Harman family and is private.

The Carrownisky River is currently not meeting its conservation limit, and consequently salmon angling is strictly on a catch-and-release basis.

Sea Trout

The river gets a small run of sea trout throughout the summer, averaging 0.5lbs. Current legislation requires that all sea trout are released alive.

Part of this fishery is owned by the Harman family and is private.
