Corduff Lake, Ballinamore

Corduff is a small lake stuffed full of lively tench, bream, rudd and roach, with a bonus of being sheltered from strong winds. There are two double and a single fishing stand, along with limited angling from the bank itself. Perfect for those who don’t want to walk too far and a real chance to hook into a decent bream or tench on your preferred leger or float tackle. There are near bank lily pads in the margins but otherwise it has a clean bottom. To get the best results it pays to groundbait the day before and then fish from first light or late afternoon.

Species: Bream, skimmer bream, roach, rudd, hybrids, tench, pike and perch Best baits: Bread, worm, pellet, corn, maggot and caster
