Coarse Fishing and Angling in the Caledon Area

Northern Ireland is undoubtedly one of the finest angling destinations in Europe. Whether you’re into coarse, game or sea fishing – we have it all and at Caledon Cottages you will be spoiled for choice with a number of popular trout and coarse fishing lakes nearby as well as the River Blackwater which flows through Caledon Village.

Brantry Lough provides high class brown trout fishing with over 5000 takeable trout stocked throughout the season. There is a good fall of terrestrial insects on this water. A surfaced path surrounds the lake and angling stands have been provided. There is a soft boggy pocket in the bay at the south-east corner near the car-park and anglers should exercise great care when wading in this area.

Creeve is the sister lake of Brantry and is situated south of the Aughnacloy-Benburb road. A hardcore path surrounds the lake and gives easy access to the fishing stands provided. There is a background of deciduous trees which supply shade to the lake and car-parks. Scientific examination has shown Creeve to be very productive, with a perch growth rate exceeding all other Irish waters. A 0.6 kg perch has been taken from this lake and the heaviest pike reported was 16.9 kg and measure 109 cm in length.

Enagh Lough – this is a good pike fishery where pike weighing over seven kg were caught in the past. Bream and tench are also present. The lough side nearest the road has been developed for angling.
