Greg Latour of Tir na Spideog reports on the pike fishing at Lough Allua…

A nice pike for Rene
A nice pike for Rene

05 February: My Customer Rene from Germany caught a number of decent pike today on his guided fishing day. The biggest one got away (as usual…) by wrapping the line around some tree in 10 meters of water. Hard luck for the pike and for us as Rene had the fish on for 6 or 7 minutes without ever getting to see what was without a doubt, a nice granny.

Another one…

The temperature on Lough Allua is at 6C, so we may get an early spawning season this year.

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
