Consisting of the Crumlin River and a number of loughs, the Crumlin Fishery provides good fishing mainly for sea trout and possibility of a grilse. The main angling activity takes place on lakes Ugga Beag and Ugga Mor, the first two loughs on the system. Ugga Beag appears to be the best lough on the system and is shallow with many rocks, ideal conditions for sea trout and the odd salmon. On the other hand Ugga Mor is deep in the center and most sea trout are caught around the sides of the lake and would not hold as many fish as Ugga Beag. The other lough that gets a run of sea trout is Lough Fada. This lake is more like a large pool and is best fished when the wind is from the south or North. It is narrow and would suit either bank fishing or from a tube. It has a roadway all the way up to it from the main Inverin / Ballinahown road and turnoff is at Mina church up to the right.
There has been an improving run of sea trout into Crumlin over the past years and a successful day has seen up to 15 sea trout to the rod and a number of fish in the 2-3lb range. Methods used here are single barbless fly fishing only. Half the day is spent fishing on Ugga Beag and the other half on Ugga Mor. Catch and release for both sea trout and salmon.
There are a number of other loughs on the system higher up on the bogs and management intends carrying out developments works in 2017 of clearing the river access where it has become blocked and input gravel to improve spawning. This should lead to improved runs of fish throughout the system.
Open season runs from 1 February until 30 September for salmon and the sea trout fishing generally begins from June to end of September.
