We’ve now made the cost of salmon fishing so low, you hardly need waders!

With the worldwide recession, fishery owners, lodges and guides across the globe are reducing their charges so that salmon anglers can keep fishing and new anglers can be attracted to the sport.

In Ireland, the Blackwater Lodge – in conjunction with its beat owners –  is leading the way by now making salmon fishing more affordable for everyone.

Cast your eye on this……………

For the 2013 season, fishing rates on the Lodge beats will range from €15 per day to €80 per day in the prime time. Some of these rates reflect a reduction on 2012 prices of over 50%.

We have exclusive use of 11 prime beats on the famous Cork Blackwater, all insured and each one subject to an on-going, rigorous maintenance programme to guarantee your safety, comfort and enjoyment.

Fish When You Like

We have a (limited) number of season syndicate rods available at €750 for the season. Please enquire for details & availability.

Stay Where You Like

Just because you’re fishing Lodge waters doesn’t mean you have to stay with us.  If you do, you can choose to stay in the Lodge, bed and breakfast, for only €35 per night (single supplement €10). Or choose from a variety of self-catering bungalows on the grounds for only €80 per day up to a four-bedroom version for €500 a week. Packed lunches and evening meals are available. There is also a wide selection of hotels, guesthouses, and B&Bs in the area, if that’s your preference.
