This is a well-established and well-serviced coarse angling centre with specialist operator’s resident to look after your needs. There are plenty of angling venues around the centre, mainly on the main River Shannon and on the numerous backwaters near the town.
This area fishes very well in the May/June period when many of the backwaters are full of bream and tench. Access is very good generally, with a number of developments including new access roads and other facilities.
The hot water section below the town produces some wonderful big tench along with good catches of bream, roach and hybrids. The backwaters at Capalitra, Mickie’s Pond and Clonfert can provide excellent fishing in quiet surroundings. Fishing is free on the River Shannon but an IFI permit is required for the River Suck which joins the Shannon close by.
