Lough Melvin - Sitting on the western end of Co. Fermanagh this is one of Ireland's most famous Loughs. Only three miles from the sea coast of Donegal Bay, Lough Melvin stretches nine miles along the foot of the Dartry Mountains. It is an unspoilt water of great beauty and is renowned for the range of fish, plants and animals that it supports. It is home to three distinct species of trout – the magic sonaghan, the gillaroo and the ferox – as well as enjoying a run of spring salmon and grilse.
Fishing starts in February with the arrival of the first salmon and continues through the months with grilse from May to July and wonderful trout fishing throughout the season. Trolling is the most used method for the springers but fly fishing for the sonaghan and gillaroo, as well as the grilse, is excellent. There is good public access with boat jetties at Kinlough Pier, Stracomer, Breffni Pier, Dernaseer and Garrison. Boats, and in some cases, boatmen and outboards, are available for hire.
