Fishing is a great activity. As we all know, our planet is mostly covered by water, and one can only imagine the vastness of species of fish that live in these waters. Fish is nature’s wonderful creation as they come in so many different colors and sizes. It has a major role to play in creating a marine life under the ocean.
Lough Corrib is 42,000 acres in size and stretches in length from within 4 miles of Galway City to within 2 miles of Maum Bridge, a distance of 33 miles. The lough is renowned for its wild brown trout and salmon fishing. Brown trout fishing is usually good from the first day of the season and the salmon fishing for grilse is best from around the end of May. Trout can be caught on wet fly from opening day, Feb. 15th.
A number of specimen brown trout are caught on the lough, during the season. The record stands at around 21.5lb, caught in September 2002. There are boats for hire at several locations around the lough, and boatmen are also available at most boat stations. Angling on Lough Corrib is free.
