lough allua,10 miles south of macroom , mainly bank or roat fishing for perch and pike , might be worth a go for a day as a change venue, produces good pike to lure anglers
carrigadrochid resevoir; pretty much as above but it also produces some good rudd.
Mcculls and buckleys ponds:3 miles east of macroom, both hold nice stocks of rudd and tench.
iniscarra resevoir: probably the jewel in the crown of the lee valley fisheries it can produce some really big catches of skimmers and bream , and also perch rudd pike and some big eels.
for the big shoals of bream you will need to pile in the bait , and prebait if you can with crumb,corn and casters.
methods: standard feeder stuff for the bream on iniscarra , try waggler and feed casters over the top for the rudd and perch on the smaller venues
there are also ballincolig resevoir and the lough in cork city for carp fishing.
contact the south western regional fisheries board for a full lee valley fisheries brochure.
ALSO try www.cfb.ie for more info and contacts.
im not 100% sure if the phone numbers are up to date but the cfb site should help you out .
Great Stuff Adan,
Got to agree with Inniscarra as the prime target.
A little bit further outta Cork and Lismore is the Summer home (at the fantastic looking Castle) of the Duke of Devonshire. He lives in Chatsworth Park normally, where the recent Angling fair was held.
Here the R.Blackwater is great, offering several swims including the competition stretch.
Thats if you want Roach on trhe stick as opposed to Bream.
The hospital stretch is great too, but the Cappoquin tackle dealer is fly only lol.
Theres a hellova Tench Lake nearby that was closed over the foot and mouth scare all last year, so should be prime!
SW Board site has all the details
Another link and follow from Blackwater to Dromna for those Tench!
Booked everything, will plan a pre-baited swim for you for sunday 23rd of June and supply exact location, probably on Erne Nr Belturbet.
Let me know if still on.
