Coarse Fishing

Lough Derg

At 13,000 hectares this is a very daunting prospect to fish. Best known for it excellent coarse fishing with monster pike (there is a tale of a 92lb pike being caught) and great bream, tench, roach and perch the loch does hold good stocks of brown trout and a species of trout called croneen that are unique to Derg.

There are a number of places around Killaloe Bridge. The one shown in the Google Screen Shot below on Lakesde Drive looks accessible but no safety rails. There is disabled person parking.
