The Fishing

Spring fishing can be brilliant as shoals of roach and hybrids leave the vast waters of Lough Derg, move upstream into the river around Portumna. From June through to late October the river returns to normal with a more even spread of species, including a lot more bream. Access is excellent with many natural bank swims. There are several prime angling hotspots stretches located on the river Shannon and on the shorelines of Lough Derg. The most popular river Portumna venues are the Town waters Rogers Island. Further upriver are the Salmon Run and the Old Sheebeen sections.

House Special
Expert angling advice is available, there is a fishing tackle shop and bait stockist in Portumna (Palmerston Store) and boats/engines can be hired locally for pre-baiting and fishing from quite shorelines around the lake.
