The following are some of the classic waters that have been developed in recent years. Lough Bridget (or Silvergrove), a short distance from Tulla, its 90 acres are fitted out with 30 fishing stands immediately off the lakeside car park. Specimen tench have been recorded at Bridget and there is very good fishing for bream, roach, pike and perch. Doon Lake is another gem alongside the road near the village of Broadford. This lake is very accessible with lots of natural bank fishing space. Doon Lake is a coarse fishing haven, but it’s noted mainly as a pike fishery and has produced some fine quality pike over recent years. Boats are available for hire close by.
Although all the lakes in East Clare are set in beautiful, peaceful countryside the location of Kilgory Lake is superb. It’s 70 acres, set in picturesque woodlands and bogland, flanked by heather hills, exude magical isolation. The lake has 22 causeway fishing stands of stone, extending outside the reeded edges. Kilgory is primarily a bream fishery.
For the tench specialist Roslara Lake, which is also close by Tulla is worth exploring and Tulla, Broadford, Scarriff and Feakle are noted angling centres in East Clare.
