Lough Melvin, with its three distinct species of brown trout, (Gillaroo, Sonagahan & ferox) is renowned for its game fishing and has a world reputation 'par excellence'. Salmon fishing is available all year round
with a good run of early spring fish with the summer providing some great grilse fishing. The lake also holds Artic Char, Perch, Eels and Rudd. The Rudd have recently been 'introduced' to the lake, (only beSean Maguirecoming numerous and widespread in the last 10 years) and are now threatening the delicate ecosystem of the Lough so anglers are advised to remove them from the water.

Nearby is Lower Lough Erne, famous for both its course and game fishing (Pike, Perch, Roach, Rudd, Bream, Eels, Brown Trout, Salmon). There is a particularly good Mayfly hatch on the Erne system with many large brown trout succumbing to the temptation. Lough Macnean is also close by and is primarily a course fishing venue. (Pike, Perch, Roach, Rudd, Bream, Eels, Brown Trout). The Atlantic Ocean is a short drive for the Sea fishing enthusiast.

The surrounding area also offers a host of lakes and rivers remaining in a natural and pristine state providing a paradise to be explored at leisure by the visiting angler!

Zebra mussels are now becoming widespread throughout the Erne system so anglers transporting water-craft are requested to enure their hulls and engines are thoroughly cleaned to prevent contamination of 'clean' waters.
