Get hooked! Enjoy a superb day wild brown trout fishing on one of the most scenic rivers in Connemara with an expert private fishing guide. Pax: min 1, max 3 fishermen. Available February to end September.

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 private fishing guide/ghillie (who is fluent in both French and English) will advise you on the best flies to use and take you to the best places to fish on the rivers.
