The deepest part of the lake consists of a large basin located south west of Church Island where depths of 10-20m have been recorded.
Most of the lake can be fished from the bank and has developed road access at Haughton’s Shore (1), Garadice Park (2) and Church Shore (3).
A boat slipway is provided in the harbour at Haughtons shore and boats can also be launched from the shore at Garadice Park.
Car parking is provided at Creamers Shore (4) on the northern side and close to Connolly’s Shore (5) on the southern side of the lake.
This lake produces good numbers of small to medium sized pike but fish in excess of 20lbs are recorded regularly. The deep water off Church Island in the middle of the lake can be productive and the shallow bays towards Newtowngore produce good numbers of fish in the springtime.
