Fishing in Waterville
Lough Currane is within walking distance of Clifford's B&B and is known for its enormous runs of seatrout throughout July and August. You can enjoy the lake either by driving or walking the road which skirts its southern shores or by boating and visiting some of the many interesting islands on the lake. The lake is known for stocks of salmon and sea trout.
Church Island with its 12th century church and ruins of earlier monastic settlement is of particular interest.
There are numerous other lakes within ten miles of Waterville such as: Lough Derriana, Cloonaghlin, Namona, and Lough na Capaill.
The cummeragh drains a catchment of 46 square miles, including ten loughs into lough currane. Water levels on the five-mile stretch of river hold well for several days after a spate. Producing occasional spring salmon, the river is better known for summer grilse fishing that extends through to the end of September.
The Inny River and Valley
The catchment is a long narrow mountain valley of some 47 square miles, and the fishing, which can be excellent, is usually confined to about 8 hours following a spate. Regarded mainly as a grilse fishery, it also gets a run of good seatrout from april and smaller fish throughout the summer.
Clifford's B&B will gladly organise Ghillies/Boat Hire for you locally.
