Corrib is a wild brown trout fishery. Fishing is free for trout but a licence is required for salmon. Based in Oughterard you are in the heart of Irelands flyfishing country and the people you meet all share a common interest. Here you are also well placed to sample of some of the salmon and sea trout fisheries in Connemara.
One can expect to take trout on the fly at any time during the season, given the right conditions, but the chances are greater and the sport is better during the big fly hatches. The first of these is the Duck Fly from mid March to early April, progressing to the Olive hatches through April and then on to the famous Mayfly from the early days of May to the beginning of June. Your next best fly fishing opportunity through June and July is for the summer run of salmon which brings you on to the Daddy and Grass Hopper fishing of August and September.
Lifejackets are provided with all boats. There is a well equipped rod room with a freezer, stove drying facilities and local maps. Lal and Gary will answer any queries and offer advice.
