Coarse Angling Carrick-On-Shannon
Fishing
Carrick-On-Shannon stands astride the great River Shannon, from where 41 lakes are within a six-mile radius. The town stretches of the Shannon are well-developed, with plenty of bream, roach, and pike available.

Carrick-On-Shannon, located in the Upper Shannon Region in County Leitrim, is a major angling centre which is very well-serviced with quality and specialist accommodation and tackle stores. It is an extensive coarse angling area with an abundance of fishing hotspots available, both on the main River Shannon and in the many lakes in the system.

Lough Boderg has a good stock of bream, hybrids, rudd, roach, and perch, and also offers good pike angling opportunities.

To the west is Drumharlow Lake, where stand facilities are available to fish rudd and roach. North from here, Shanballybaun Lake has plenty of sport with bream, rudd, and hybrids galore. Carrickevy Lake and Lough Bran provide waterside parking stands and good fishing for bream and tench.
