River fishing for Wild Brown Trout. Ballynahinch River, French speaking GhillieFishing Charters & Tours

River fishing for Wild Brown Trout. Ballynahinch River, French speaking Ghillie

The wild brown trout offers excellent sport from the season opener in March through its close at the end of September. The many fisheries in Connemara have networks of interconnected lakes ("loughs") and rivers populated by the native trout of Ireland. This wild brown trout in Connemara's lakes and connecting rivers average in size from one to two pounds. The trout fishing is very dependable, with hatches starting in April and peaking in May and early June. Then, caddis, crane flies and terrestrials keep the trout looking up all summer long. Because Connemara's rivers and lakes are acidic, food is scarce, so the trout rise eagerly to dry flies and take wet flies and nymphs with little hesitation. The "ferox", or large cannibal brown trout, prey on their smaller brethren in larger lakes. Your knowledgeable local French Ghillie will advise you on the best flies to use and take you to the best places to fish on the rivers. Pax: min 1, max 3 fishermen. Available: February to end September.

Pike shore fishing. Lough Corrib, Connemara .English/French speaking Ghillie.Fishing Charters & Tours

Pike shore fishing. Lough Corrib, Connemara .English/French speaking Ghillie.

Pike fishing on the shores of Lough Corrib is ranked very high by fishermen internationally. Anglers go on the trail of the trophy pike on Lough Corrib from the middle of July onwards to the middle of December. Several methods of angling are used to catch pike. Your guide will advise you on which method of angling to use on the day. There are numerous options: Spinning – fishing from a stationary position with baits/lures. Dead-baiting- fishing with a dead natural bait (usually Perch, Roach, Herring Eel) using a float. This method of angling is best when there is enough wind to make the float drift. Dead-baiting and spinning are usually carried out at the same time. Jerk baiting – this is a rather new method of pike fishing on Corrib and the angler will require a special rod & reel and a selection of Jerk Baits. Pax: min 1, max 3. Available all year.
