Fishing In Galway
Galway Fishing advice
Lough Corrib is perhaps one of the best game fisheries in the world. The lake covers over 40,000 acres and stretches for about 35 miles or so from Galway city to Maam Bridge in Connemara. The most popular catches on Lough Corrib are brown trout and pike. Trout fishing is most popular from February to the end of September while pike fishing is best from mid July to the end of December.
Coarse fish include bream, perch and eels. It's also a good spot for Roach fishing, especially from April to December. Salmon fishing is also popular on Lough Corrib. The lake flows into the sea at Galway city and here the wild Atlantic salmon are quite plentiful. See if you can spot them at the famous salmon Weir Bridge beside Galway City Cathedral.
Sea Fishing Galway
Fishing the sea around Galway can be magnificent, with large varieties of fish to be found all year round.
From the south western point of Omey Island, pollack can be taken while spinning and wrasse and conger while bottom fishing. The 'island' is joined to the mainland by a sandbar which is covered by high tide.
At low tide the southern side of the bar is an excellent bait gathering area. Lugworm, sandeel, occasional clam and white ragworm can be found there. Spring tide strips, which expose a greater area of beach are particularly productive.
