I have a soft spot for Barrymore point in the south-west corner of Lough Ree, fish at the end of the point next to the big boulders, plenty ground bait, plenty big Bream and we've usually managed the odd 5ib Tench. Or just below the weir below Athlone you'll see where 2 sh*t pipes go into the main river, these pipes unfortunately feed the Bream also, not the nicest fishing and with a rubbish dump behind you the odd rat may have to be chased off your groundbait, but it is good fishing.
