Bring your fishing gear, when you come to stay and fish in Gougane Barra Lake.We have everything else you need; rowing boats, life-jackets, complimentary fishing permits and an unspoilt lake in Gougane Barra with a natural stock of brown trout at our front door.
We will be happy to chat to you about the ‘good places’ to fish.
You can keep the fish you catch (though there is a size limit to respect) and we will gladly cook your catch in the evening for you.
See you at dinner time…
As you follow the river Lee downstream to the nearby lake called Lough Allua, (10km from Gougane) there is excellent coarse fishing with fighting pike, bream, rudd, and perch to be caught with a pair of strong arms.
Go a little further to the man-made larger lakes of Carrigadrohid and Iniscarra which form part of the hydro systems on the river, and here you will find large stocks of bream, it is not uncommon to land a 7lb fish!
There are lakes in every direction from Gougane Barra, depending on the type of fishing that interests you; from a stocked lake at Lough Bofinne near Bantry Bay to game angling on the Lakes of Killarney and Lough Currane.
If sea-angling is your type of fishing, Ireland’s southwest region is an undiscovered paradise for sea-angling, with over 1000km of coastline over 33 species of fish and a mild climate, all very accessible from here in a day trip.
No fishermen’s excuses here!
