New Boat Hire Service for Pike Anglers on Lough Derravaragh

June 10th, 2017 | by

Well known broadcaster and angling guide Alan Broderick is based on the shores of beautiful Lough Derravaragh in Co Westmeath. Alan has been in touch to let us know that in addition to his guiding services he has a number of boats with outboard motors for hire at this great fishing location. Alans’ boats are 4.8m Lund Lakers which have foldable pedestal seating and are fully equipped with automatic inflating life jackets, landing net, anchor, a map of the lake and a 5m push pole. Each boat is powered by a 25hp outboard and has a Lowrance fish finder. The raised casting platforms fore and aft provide anglers with a good solid platform from which to fish. In addition Alan will provide launch and recovery services for you so all you have to do is get your gear ready and get fishing. There is an additional charge for fuel supplied.

Lough Derravaragh is a long narrow lake nearly 5 miles (8 kms) in length and an area of over 2700 acres (1080 hectares). The northern part of the lake is wide and shallow with depths graduating from 1.5 meters at the margins to about 6 meters at the centre of the lake. The southern half of the lake narrows into a long deep neck with depths up to 20 meters at its southern most end.

Lough Derravaragh is located about 14 kms north west of Mullingar. Multyfarnham village is in close proximity off its southern shore and Castlepollard which lies to the north east is also a recognised angling centre offering facilities for visiting anglers. Should anglers wish to stay on this side of the lake, Castlepollard has plenty to offer.
