Greg Latour of Tir na Spideog reports on the pike fishing on Lough Allua where the pike are taking well…

02 September: 11 pike landed today for my happy dutch customers , Lough Allua is fishing very well . All methods seemed to work today, trolling, jigging, dead baiting and vertical fishing all produced pike . Even colours didn’t seem to matter .

My new Savage gear Line Thru Roach didn’t get a touch though. I think it will have to rest in my box till spring as it didn’t dive to 5 meters and that’s where the pike are at the moment …

07 September: I have certainly fished on nicer days as fog and persistent drizzle pestered us all day. My dutch customer and his friend didn’t mind the weather as we caught 6 pike on our trip with the longest pike measuring 105 cm and a personal best for Toni Mees.

Go fishing…

Tir na Spideoga Fishing Lodge is situated on the shores of Lough Allua, about 5km from Inchigeelagh Village, overlooking a narrow but long water system, also called the ‘ Inchigeelagh lakes’. Lough Allua ranks amongst the top pike fishing waters of Ireland, regularly producing pike of 20 and 30 lbs. and still it is one of the least known pike venues on the island .

A guided day on the lake for 2 anglers costs as little as €80 – plus €40 for the boat hire. No permit is required
