Culfin

This fishery is situated 6 miles west of Leenane and is comprised of the Culfin River, Lough Muck and Lough Fee. Access to the fishery is easy as the Leenane-Tully Cross Road runs along the shore of the lakes and close to the river in several places. Fly fishing is most successful, but spinning with barbless hooks is also allowed. Bait fishing is not permitted.

The fishing is privately owned by the Ormsby Family and Kylemore Abbey and permits are available.

Salmon

The fishery is not known for spring salmon, and grilse start to run the river in June, with the run peaking in July. The grilse average 3-5lbs. Bank fishing from the shore of Lough Muck and Lough Fee can produce grilse and brown trout on small flies.

Sea Trout

The fishery gets a small run of sea trout, although they are not as plentiful as in former times. The lakes have a good stock of small wild brown trout, with some fish to over 1lb. Current legislation requires that all sea trout are released alive.
