Currygrane Lake has a lovely variety of fish - pike, bream, tench, perch, & roach in the relatively unexplored waters.

There is a slipway and boat house fifty yards from the lodge, with boat and outboard engine provided for the sole use of the occupants.

Close by lie the famous Gowna Lakes, the River Inny, River Shannon and the Royal Canal.

Excerpt from The Complete Guide to Coarse Fisheries in The Irish Midlands

coarse fisheries ireland"The fishing holds fond memories for me - it was on Currygrane around 40 years ago that I first fished from a boat. At that time it was all pike fishing; I had some great days piking both from the boat and also off the shore. Fish to 20lb were common, for some reason the red and white plug bait is very popular with Currygrane pike. Be careful when wading, the bed off the lake can be very soft in places.

If you enjoy piking then put Currygrane on your short list. The lake lies in lovely scenic surroundings. During 2004 Noel Brady who owns the fishing lodge and the land surrounding the lake told me the Fishery Board released a large number of bream and tench into Currygrane. Prior to this, the lake held a good stock of roach. There is plenty of shore fishing and a boat launching area on the lake."
