Fishing is flying at Lochmahon Lakes. In early March we stocked the specimen Carp lake with 180 Carp from 6 to 10 lbs and 8 Carp averaging 20 lbs. The Match lake which already has some fine Tench, Rudd, Roach and Carp has been stocked with an additional 1000 1 lb to 2 lb Carp. The Fly lake has been stocked with an additional 100 2/3 kilo Rainbows. Our new tackle shop has a good range of tackle and baits from leading brands including Airflo, Fox, Ngt, Korum, Preston, Matrix, Dynamite and CC Moore. Fly fishermen can now fly fish on the Match lake. We now also have an online shop www.lochmahontackle.ie
