River Fergus System and LakesEnnis Clare - Ireland West
River Fergus System The Fergus rises in the Burren region of north Clare and flows southwards through the village of Corofin and the town of Ennis to join the tidal waters of the Shannon Estuary at Newmarket-on-Fergus. A network of 20 lakes of varying sizes, in the main river and on its tributaries, combine to form an extensive catchment area of great angling waters. The river flows through limestone country and is therefore enriched by the high calcium content in the water. This calcium encourages healthy growth in the plant and fish life in the many reed-fringed lakes throughout its length. Within this relatively compact area there is a wide range of angling available including salmon, brown trout, pike, perch, bream, tench, rudd and eels. In recent years some of its lakes and ponds have produced excellent tench fishing. Please click on the web site below for further information.
