Drumshanbo is a picturesque town that sits at the most northerly navigable point of the River Shannon, dipping its toes in Lough Allen and resting its elbows on the Arigna Mountains and Sliabh an Iarinn.

Drumshanbo, County Leitrim is home to Lough Allen, which provides a great variety for the angler with plenty of bays, shallow and deep stretches, a few islands, a pier, and lots more. Rudd, perch, bream, roach, and hybrids abound, and where the roach are to be found, large pike are never far away for this is one of Ireland's premium pike waters.

There are also a number of lakes immediately surrounding Drumshanbo centre. Inland Fisheries Ireland provides angling facilities on some of these fisheries. Lustia is a small, shallow lake that can become weedy during the summer. The lake holds a good stock of small bream and roach.

Acres Lake, meanwhile, has good bream, roach, and hybrids. The lake is shallow and can also experience some weediness during summer.
