In Ireland, I live in the heart of the so-called ‘Lakelands District’ with the main lakes being ‘Lough Ramor’ and ‘Lough Nadreegeel’. These lakes are famous for their fishing and other leisure activities.

This is our farm overlooking Lough Nadreegeel in the greenness of an Irish winter.

The dairy cows on their way down to the lake fields on a foggy summer’s morning.

The main types of fish that can be caught in these lakes are: Roach, Rudd, Hybrids, Pike, Perch & Eel. The fishing season is all year round, and all legal methods of fishing can be used, however it should be noted that live bait is forbidden for Pike fishing.

Nadreegeel (Lackan) Lakes is situated about 2 miles from Ballyjamesduff. The upper western lake is approached from the Virginia-Cavan road. The lower lake is approached off the same road near the Billises.

As can be seen from the map above, these lakes are connected by a narrow channel. On the upper lake parking is limited on this narrow road and there are some swims which can be fished. The lake contains good stocks of Roach, Rudd, Hybrids, Pike, Perch and Eel. Nadreegeel is locally called Lacken Lake. The lower lake has limited fishing space. Fish caught here include Bream, Roach, Pike, Perch and Eel.

Lough Ramor is located beside Virginia and is larger in size. It has 32 Islands (try to count them!) - none of which are known to be inhabited......but that’s a long story for a fitting occasion over a beer....
