The Rosses Fishery which is controlled by the Rosses Anglers Association is set in arguably the most rugged and beautiful part of Ireland. The fishery is set in the North West of the county of Donegal and comprises over 120 lakes.
Dungloe (An Clochan Liath) is the capital of the Rosses area and forms the focal point from which the many local and visiting anglers set out for an enjoyable days fishing. The angler has not only a wide range of waters to fish but also a wide choice of trout and salmon fishing. For the traditional angler that enjoys nothing better than the hard fighting native brown trout and sea trout then you truly have come to a paradise on earth.
For the angler that is attracted to stocked trout fishing then the club has an excellent new Rainbow Fishery Lough Waskel. The lough is stocked with Triploid Rainbows with an average weight of 2.5 lbs and as large as 12lbs weight and these are undoubtedly the strongest pound for pound fish ever encountered. Last but not least the fishery contains some excellent rivers and lakes known for their large runs of Atlantic salmon. Apart from game fishing, deep sea angling or rock fishing is very popular and very plentiful.
This is the first lake of 8 on the system and contains native brown trout and sea trout. The lake contains several small islands and on the main island there is a hut where one can shelter and have their refreshments. Lighting of fires on the islands or shore is strictly forbidden and we ask all to remove their litter when leaving.

Craghy lies in a really picturesque setting and it is well worth walking the shore or taking a boat to take in the beauty of the area. The fish are native brown trout with again runs of sea trout which can be good in mid July but the largest run is September onwards.
