    Tarmonbarry is located on the Upper Shannon.  The river forms the boundary between Co Roscommon and Co. Longford see thumbnail map top right. It lies about 5 miles to the west of Longford town and about 85 miles from Dublin, to the east.

    WHERE TO FISH  

    There are a number of fishing venues situated around the centre. The main Shannon runs adjacent to Tarmonbarry village with swims located upstream and downstream of the bridge. There is also the Camlin River to the east and the Feorish River to the west.  This guide describes these fisheries  in some detail and provides angling notes. We hope you find these useful

    A fish stock survey conducted in 2003 published in April 2004 indicates that the area of the River Shannon from Drumsna to Rooskey supports a large and healthy stock of coarse fish dominated by Roach / Bream hybrids, Roach, Perch and Bream in that order. Relatively small numbers of Tench, Pike, Rudd and trout were encountered in the surveyed sections.

    Camlin River

    The Camlin River is a slow moving river. Fishing is into depths of about 5ft to 10ft in normal conditions. There are some good stretches, but can be difficult to find for first time visiting anglers.   Anglers can have good sport here particularly during the early summer months. The Camlin River is part of the Midland Fisheries Group of IFI managed waters and requires a fishing permit. You can BUY YOUR FISHING PERMIT ONLINE

    FACILITIES AND ACCESS: IFI Limerick have a number of access footbridges and stiles on the fishery. The best areas are situated upstream off the N5 road. Other sections of river can be accessed from local road bridges. Directions are difficult to give here – enquire locally.

    TO GET THERE: This section of the Camlin River is located about 3 kms to the Longford side of Tarmonbarry.

    Feorish River

    The Feorish River is a slow moving water which has its confluence on the Shannon at Tarmonbarry. It tends to weed up quite badly during high summer which limits angling at this time, best time spring and early summer (April & May).

    FACILITIES AND ACCESS: Access is good via a local road bridge. IFI provides a number of access stiles in the area to assist anglers.

    TO GET THERE: The Fishery is located about 2 km to the west of Tarmonbarry, turning left off the N5 onto a local roadway. Continue up a narrow road to a  local road bridge.
