The angling club at Annagh Rainbow Trout Lake has been in touch to let us know about some superb new amenities that they have just installed on the lakeshore.

Annagh Lake is a 100-acre crystal clear spring-fed lake, located 2km from Butlersbridge village and 7km from Cavan Town. The lake is within easy reach of both Dublin (1.5hrs) and Belfast (1.5hrs), and attracts anglers from all parts of the country. It is stocked with quality fighting-fit triploid rainbow trout and stocking takes place four times annually. 

Recently the club has built a superb log cabin on the lakeshore, and all anglers have access to this facility. They have also installed a unisex compost toilet, and both the cabin and toilet are accessible by wheelchair.

The lake itself has been made accessible via a 60ft floating jetty, which has an attached ladder fitting for ease of entry and exit. There is a separate boat and access area for disabled users. There are 8 club boats on the lake which are available to hire.

The fishery remains open until the 30th of November so it’s still an option for anyone who is looking to cast at a trout or two.  If you are interested in fishing the lake, IFI has worked with the club to produce a brochure with information on the fishery and it is available to download here.
