The Fermanagh Lakelands is a haven for anglers. With its abundance of Loughs and Rivers, our waters offer game anglers the opportunity to fish for salmon and wild brown trout as well as stocked rainbow and brown trout. The famous sonaghan, ferox and gillaroo can also be found in these diverse waters.''Fermanagh is an ideal destination for canoeing enthusiasts with the magnificent lakes of Upper and Lower Lough Erne, lined by the River Erne, providing a trail of up to 50km. From the Woodford River on the Upper Lough the Shannon Erne Waterway can be reached and from there it is possible to paddle all the way to Limerick!  Lower Lough Erne and its rugged shoreline provide a vast expanse of open water where large waves can build during windy periods �' an ideal venue for the experienced paddler! In stark contrast the Upper Lough provides good shelter with its maze of bays, narrow channels of slow flowing water and innumerable islands and peninsulas offering a superb venue for the whole family!
