The Fishery: From the Notes of Peter O'Reilly

Camillaun Angling Centre and Guest House is located in the village of Oughterard on the western shore of Lough Corrib, one of the most important wild brown trout fisheries in Europe. The trout season extends from mid-February to 30th September and there is the added bonus of free fishing for salmon from mid-May. Angling methods include wet and dry fly fishing, dapping and trolling, a favourite method for the less experienced angler with the possibility of landing a big Corrib ferox trout.

The angler’s every need is taken care of. There are boats and outboards for hire, rod hire, fishing flies for sale and a fly tying desk where you can tie your own. Gillies can be arranged and there is also excellent advice on the best drifts and locations depending on the weather.

The lodge is also very conveniently situated for the angler with an eye on a day’s trout or salmon fishing on one of the famous Connemara fisheries.
