Tipperary Angling

Kilmastulla River
The Kilmastulla River empties into the Shannon at Parteen. It is a drained river with very high banks in places. It holds moderate stocks of trout close to the headwaters and in a short stretch immediately upstream of the Nenagh-Limerick road. Access is difficult.

Angling River Suir
The River Suir downstream of Clonmel is broad and deep with productive shallow glides. From Clonmel to Tikincor Bridge it holds moderate to good stocks of brown trout; from Tikincor to Kilsheelan it holds good stocks of relatively large trout. Much of the fishing in this area is controlled by Clonmel and District Angling Club.

River Tar

The Tar river is a wide shallow river (18 to 25 yards) with a healthy growth of ranunculus weed, which is a haven for insect life. Very often compared to the river Itchen in Southern England. There is a huge stock of fish in this river, making the average size of the fish smaller than others. The average size being 1/4 to 1/2 pounds (23cm to 28cm). There are still plenty of good size trout in this river with trout up to 45cm being regularly captured. Fly hatches include caddis, olives, reed smuts, baetis, midges, etc.

Cahir Angling Association
To fish this river body waders are practically essential. The river has a fine gravel bed, which gives a solid base underfoot. This is a big river with a strong current and anglers should take due care when wading.

Fly tying specialist George McGrath of Cuileoga, The Square, Cahir can supply all your fishing tackle needs. He advises that good fishing is available 4 kms upstream and 4 kms downstream of the bridge in Cahir. Fishing for brown trout is fly only. George has extensive knowledge of the local rivers – All advice freely given.

North Tipperary Angling Club
The 17 acre spring fed lake is stocked with rainbow and brown trout which feed naturally in the crystal clear waters.

The lake is also home to naturally occurring pike, perch and eel. The lake can be fished by boats which are supplied or from fishing stands which have been constructed on the shore line. Fishing is confined to fly only. Also at the Centre we have 600 yards of river fishing. The river can be fished using worms on floats or fly fishing.
