Fishing in Monaghan

A fisherman’s paradise with a multitude of lakes and rivers with angler access. Characterised by a natural drumlin landscape, the County and it’s surrounding neighbours – Cavan, Fermanagh, Armagh, Tyrone and Louth – provide easy access to quality fishing, interesting sightseeing and lively night-time entertainment.

Our lakes and rivers are here for your enjoyment and coarse anglers will find good stocks of bream, roach, rudd, hybrids, tench, pike, eels and perch. Game anglers can enjoy salmon fishing as well as wild, brown and rainbow trout fishing.

Many fishermen return annually to enjoy the calm and current of the waters, the thrill of the catch, and the joy of the trophy and the telling of the tale among Monaghan’s beautiful hills.
