The Screeb Fishery is six miles south of Maam Cross, County Galway, at the head of Camus Bay. It consists of an inter-connected series of loughs and a short river. The fishery is famous for its stocks of pike, salmon, brown trout and sea trout.

Screebe House was built as a hunting and fishing lodge in 1865. They offer guests exclusive fishing on many lakes and rivers in the Screeb Fishery and also provide permits, day tours and advice.

This is mainly a salmon and sea trout fishery, with the salmon fishing predominating on the bank beats. It gets a small run of spring fish in April, and these are usually taken at the Salmon Pool. The grilse run from around 20 June and peak in July, while some fresh fish continue running for the rest of the season.

The various fishing stands along the fishery are the Butt of Aasleam, the Lady Pool, the Salmon Pool, Derrywonniff Butt, Glencoh Butt and the Road Pool.
