For Anglers with Disabilities

Trout fishing from the bank can be good for the less mobile angler however DAERA have erected a number of stands around the loughs to improve access. There are 6 designated stands at Queen Elizabeth Road with parking at the nearby shopping centre at Corradilar. There are also 2 stands at Broadmeadows near Enniskillin with parking spaces very nearby behind the Forum.
