This is a large Salmonid habitat which drains a catchment of some 320 square miles.
The lakes and rivers of this system have very good populations of reasonably sized Brown Trout that accept a fly eagerly.
Large Ferox Brown Trout can be caught on Lough Leane by trolling large artificial baits.
Access is good throughout and boats and guides are available.
