fishing Glencar lake

Is there a place to rent fishing gear to fish for about an hour at Glencar Lake? Would you need a boat to fish or can you fish from the shore? Are there fishing boat tours for a couple of hours max on Glencar? I found deep sea fishing in Sligo, but not seeing lake fishing.

If not, Glencar, then any Lakes in Sligo area. We'll be there September 7. Thought my hubby would enjoy a little fishing.

You can see if www.guideadvisor.com has something to meet your needs. They do river, lake and sea fishing, as well as guides for sports, activities, tours, and private drivers. I dont know if you need a license or a ghillie.

All the times that I've passed the lake I've never noticed any boats but I'm sure it's a possibility. Fishing from the shore there, I have seen. I suggest that you contact David Smith in Barton Smith's in Sligo who supply fishing gear/tackle & who will have intimate knowledge of all the possibilities for you in the Sligo area. The contact details are in the link below

Right, now that the coffee has done it's job & I'm fully awake - Temple House could be an option. I think you can hire a boat there but I have my doubts about hiring fishing gear. Again, you can contact them at the link below

Gaildorf,

You are on the right tract with Temple House & fishing, (near where I hang my hat).
