Lough Acalla is a rich limestone lake of some 30 acres 2 miles north of Kilconnell, Co Galway. It is stocked with Rainbow Trout and some Browns.
The fishery is famous for fast growing fish which regularly can produce well formed trout up to 7lbs.
Dry Fly, nymph and artificial fly lures work well.
Most of the banks on the lake are clear and wading is possible. In the summer the water here tends to be very weedy.
There is an 11 inch minimum size limit and a 3 trout bag limit. Artificial fly is the only bait permitted.
Car parking facilities are available along the shoreline.
