Fishing at Crannmor

The fishing approach at crannmor is to afford the visiting angler an exceptional angling experience using modern equipment and techniques and a detailed data base of fishing reports compiled after each fishing day. Fishing success over the past 5 years have been excellent with many anglers achieving their PBs (personal bests) during their stay. These successes have in no small way been attributed to the foregoing but also to our “ready to go policy” in the event of unfavourable weather conditions.

The season for trout runs from April to the end of September, this is self imposed as it is the best period in which to catch trout on the fly, (the only methods used at Crannmor). Pike (Esox Lucius) fishing is all year round with the best period from mid September to the end of April. It is important to know that after leaving Dublin airport you can be fishing within 90 minutes for pike or trout after checking into Crannmor.
