Fishing   ~   Oughterard
 
 
Oughterard is renowned world-wide for its excellent game angling in its Lough Corrib.
There is also Coarse fishing available on the near-by Ross Lake.

Fishing is a way of life for many that live in the area as well as a favourite pass-time for many of its visitors.

Fishing on Lough Corrib County Galway Ireland
    
Fishermen visit from all over the world to try their hand at catching its plentiful salmon and trout.

Lough Corrib is a vast lake of 41,600 acres. It is mostly shallows and contains many islands. The water is very clear and it holds a good stock of trout which average about 1lbs. Fish of up to 20lbs are occasionally taking by trolling.

Fly fishing is best in spring and autumn, but may be practised throughout the year. The most popular area for early spring Duck Fly fishing is Salthouse bay near Cong. Double fiqure bags are common in this area on a good day during April. The area round Inchiquin Island is also good.

The Corrib Mayfly hatch is renown all over the world and the ordinary wet fly fishing at this time of year can be excellent. Dapping is the most productive daytime method and during the summer evenings big fish move inshore and especially into the island shores to feed on good hatches of midges and sedges. The islands near Oughterard are good at this time.
