Fishing in Ballinamore

Ballinamore is widely acknowledged as an anglers paradise surrounded by 28 lakes within a 5 mile radius. Located within the middle reaches of the Shannon-Erne Waterway, a narrow canalised river connecting a series of lakes from Lough Scur to Garadice; there is a great variety of waters to be discovered.

The area is a premier location for the coarse and pike angler with some of the cleanest and most lightly fished natural waters in Europe.

Access to the waters is well developed with fishing stands, stiles and parking well provided for.  Much of the developed angling sections of Garadice Lake offer 'parking behind your peg' ideal for those who don't want to walk far.

The Lakelands Coarse Angling Club - Ballinamore hosts a five day angling festival in May each year and Ballinamore has recently featured as the hub for the prestigious World Pairs Angling Championships, the good fishing bringing many high profile anglers to the area.
