The stretch along the River Shannon between Lanesboro and Rooskey is an ideal base for the Pike angler. Lanesboro offers excellent facilities for the Coarse Angler. There are six venues from which to choose - The renowned Hot Water Stretch, The New Cut and Kilnacarrow and two lakes near Longford town, Clooncose and Lough Sallagh.

The best location on this stretch is Lough Forbes, which is a substantial lake in its own right, 3 kilometres long and at the northern section the widest point is over 1.5 kilometres where the River Rinn enters the lake.
