Fishing on Lough Erne


County Fermanagh is a haven for anglers, with its abundance of Loughs [Upper & Lower Lough Erne] and Rivers offering game and coarse anglers a range of fish species and fishing methods.

For the Game Fisherman there is salmon and wild brown trout as well as stocked rainbow and brown trout. The famous sonaghan, ferox and gillaroo can also be found in these diverse waters.

The Coarse Angler will find some of the finest fishing available in Europe, with bream, roach and hybrids in abundance as well as perch and tench. Add to this pike fishing that is second to none – whether seeking to catch them on fly or in a more traditional manner and the region offers all anglers wonderful opportunities.

There is no close season for the coarse fisherman and it is possible for the game angler to fish during all twelve months as Fermanagh’s designated rainbow fisheries remain open all year round.

There are many popular Loughs, rivers and fisheries that are easily accessed by visitors. Lough Erne & Lough Melvin being the more well known.
