Achork and Meenameen contain good stocks of brown trout. Fish respond well to nymphs and small dark patterned wet or dry flies.
These lakes are considered ideal for family outings as there is beautiful scenery and forest walks. Picnic areas are scattered throughout the forest.
Car parks are at the water’s edge at Glencreawan and Meenameen. There is a 40m walk along the forest path to the shore from the car park at Achork.
