Pallas Lake

OPEN SEASON: May 1st - October 12th

Pallas Lake is a small landlocked midland limestone lake located in Co Offaly about 8 miles from Tullamore town. The lake covers an area of 33 acres ( 13 Hectares). This fishery is part of the Midland Fisheries Group of managed waters and anglers require a fishing permit (ticket charge) to fish here.

As a ‘put and take’ trout fishery, it is stocked regularly by IFI with rainbow and brown trout and gives good sport throughout the season. When fish over winter they tend to grow large. Rainbow of 7 - 12lbs have been caught here. Typically fish of 1- 2lbs are the norm.

The banks are soft and wading can be a dangerous exercise. Fishing stands are provided and there are plans to extend these stands in the future. In the interest of safety anglers are advised to confine their fishing to the stands.

A range of traditional wet flies and lures work well, The Muddler Minnow, Viva, Baby Doll are some lure names which work well here.
