Lough Cowey

The fishery is open all year round. It is heavily stocked on a regular basis and has good quality overwintered fish available in early spring. Fish are taken by "matching the hatch". Bags of large fish are frequent with buzzers, streamers and lures being amongst the most popular flies.
