Mount Falcon Salmon Fishery

Mount Falcon The Angling Hub of Ireland's North West.

The Moy is the most prolific Salmon River in Ireland, with an annual rod catch of approximately 9,000 fish ( one third of the annual Irish catch ). Mount Falcon owns the fishing rights on a two miles double bank stretch just a few miles above the tide, our estate map shows the superb Fishing area on our grounds. The fishing is run exclusively for the guests staying at the hotel the Lodges, so there is no overcrowding. As well as the River Moy the region is blessed with a number of other superb Salmon fisheries. Within an hour's drive of Mount Falcon are not only a number of prolific spate river fisheries, but also Lakes where you can cast a fly for spring Salmon, summer Salmon or Grilse. Mount Falcon is pleased to be able to offer guests the opportunity to fish a variety of these waters as part of a 4 day stay. The waters that form part of our 3 Rivers Fly Fishing packages include, The Owenduff, The Erriff, Moy ( Mount Falcon / Moy Fishery beats) and Beltra and Carramore Lakes. While a number of the above venues do produce sea Trout ( mainly as a by- produce of Salmon fishing ) the main venue in the region for this species is the Moy Estuary. While they are caught by a variety of Methods more anglers are turning to fly fishing from either the  shore or a drifting boat.

The Great Western Lakes are justifiably famous for the quality of their Wild Brown Trout fishing. As part of our 3 Lake package we offer a four day stay in a Courtyard Lodge with three consecutive days fishing, one day on Lough Mask, one on Lough Conn and on day on Lught Carra. Our 3 acre spring fed estate lake offers year round Fly fishing for hard fighting Rainbow Trout, ideal for fishing in the west of Ireland.

The sea angler is well catered for with the sheltered waters of Clew Bay and Killala Bay providing the opportunity to fish for a diverse range of species including Blue Shark and common Skate. The numerous shore marks enable the land based anglers to try for a variety of fish, using either traditional shore methods or the increasingly popular saltwater Fly fishing technique. Pike abound in both the large waters such as Conn and Mask and in the more intimate waters such as Derryhick and Levally Lakes. Every year pike in excess of 25 lb are taken, let us arrange for a specialist Pike guide to take you fishing, the Pike of a lifetime awaits. 

Mount Falcon has a fully stocked Rod Room, from which quality tackle, waders and wet weather gear can be hired. We also carry a range of flies tied specifically for the venues we fish. Fly casting lessons for both double and single handed rods can be arranged. We have a range of Fishing packages available also.
