    Pike angling on St. Johns and Kiltybardan Loughs


    These lakes are located 4km west of Ballinamore and cover a combined area of 146 hectares. They are connected by a short river channel and form part of the Shannon Erne navigation. Both Loughs are shallow in nature with depths rarely exceeding 5m. These popular coarse fishing venues contain a good head of fodder fish and produce good catches of small to medium sized pike on a regular basis. There is good bank fishing available at the car parking areas on both waters but use of a boat will give access to areas not accessible from the shore. A boat slip is provided upstream of lock seven on the Shannon Erne Waterway which is located a short distance downstream from St. Johns Lough. Boats can also be launched from the car park at Kiltybardan. Car parking is provided at Kiltybardan on the R208 Ballinamore to Carrick on Shannon road and also at the bridge crossing the channel connecting the two lakes.
