Fishing Lough Corrib

Lough Corrib is 42,000 acres in size and stretches in length from within 4 miles of Galway City to within 2 miles of Maam Bridge, a distance of 33 miles. The Lough is renowned for its wild brown trout and salmon fishing. Brown trout fishing is usually good from the first day of the season. Trout can be caught on wet fly from opening day, Feb. 15th.

Each season, a number of specimen brown trout are caught on the Lough, and the record stood at around 21.5lb, caught in September 2002. However, on the 26th May 2012, a MONSTER brown trout, weighing nearly 24lbs (11kg), was hauled from the waters of Lough Corrib. The specimen fish, unofficially the second largest on record, was caught in deep water near the lake's biggest island, Inish Goill. If ratified by the Irish Specimen Fish Committee as authentic, the fish will go down as a record for Lough Corrib, and rank as the largest trout caught in Ireland in 118 years.
