There are numerous lakes within ten miles of Waterville such as: Lough Derriana, Cloonaghlin, Namona, and Lough na Capaill.

The Cummeragh

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.
Ghillies/Boat Hire available for you locally.
