The lakes and rivers across Westmeath have produced some huge catches over the years, and now with Lough Lene near Collinstown we have one of Irelands top rainbow and brown trout fisheries only 20 minutes from Mullingar. This lake produces top angling from early season for trout from March 1st, and the Peter and May Fly fishing is magic.

Lough Owel is another fine lake on our doorstep and also is well worth a trip when visiting Westmeath.

Ennell has started to produce some good fish late into the evening during Peter fishing.

Lough Ree is another spot that we keep an eye on during big fly hatches and it can produce the fish of a lifetime, if you are in the right place at the right time.

Early season river trout fishing on the Brosna always created a buzz, and even dough the fish are small, the colors are beautiful.

Mount Dalton is a late opener, starting in May it will fish quite well. Fly Only.
