    Coarse fishing in the west


    While the west of Ireland is best known for its game and sea angling, it also has some excellent coarse angling waters. In the Moycullen Lake District, there are eleven coarse fishing lakes, all holding bream, roach, rudd, perch, eel, pike and roach/bream hybrids. There are bait suppliers locally but one needs to arrange in good time to place orders for supplies.

    Good general coarse fishing. Excellent roach and bream fishing on these lakes which have easy access, good bank and some stands. All angling methods. Spring and early summer can provide some of the best catches.
