The Fishing

One of the great western lakes Lough Conn is home to the indigenous brown trout. The lake is part of the river Moy catchment area and is further enhanced by the annual run of salmon and grilse.

Angling from Enniscoe House has a tradition stretching back some 300 years. Continuing that tradition Cloonamoyne Fishery has a secure lodge and harbour with boats on the Enniscoe shore.

Enniscoe ghillies will cater for the experienced and the novice, either on the lake or on nearby waters, including local spate rivers and streams.

The fishery manager can supply appropriate tackle and clothing, arrange relevant licences and provide transport if required.
