Corbet Lough has much to offer for local anglers and tourists alike.
Corbet Lough has much to offer local anglers and tourists alike. Indeed, of the Club's total of approximately 1,000 members, around 200 are associate members, coming from outside our designated catchment area.
New updated facilities include a boating dock and jetty, complete with six fishing boats and one disabled wheelie boat. There is also a fishing lodge with toilet provision, three fishing stands with wheelchair access, tow timber shelters and three angling platforms to the front restricted concession shore.
Corbet is a spinning/fly fishing only Lough (i.e. catch and release, stopping with the third fish killed), offering rainbow trout with a smaller amount of brown trout available. Early season flies include Viva, Montana Nymph and Ace of Spades. From June onward flies include Buzzer, Sedge Patterns and Hoopers. A good year round fly is Hare Ear Nymph.
The lake, measuring 28.32 hectares, has a 3 fish per day per angler limit and a minimum takeable size of 12 inches. While anglers cannot bring boats, six boats are available from the Club, plus one boat suitable for disabled users. Day anglers who are disabled and can produce either a disabled car badge, or disabled rod licence may purchase a day ticket to worm fish from July 1 onwards.
A limited amount of fly fishing tackle (including rod, reel, line and flies) is available to hire for £10 day.
A full list of restrictions will be available when purchasing the £13 per rod per day ticket. A FCB game fishing rod license is required for adults and juveniles over 12, as is an Adult or Juvenile Banbridge Angling Club Day Ticket.
