The River Blackwater is the longest river in the Cork and Kerry Region and rises near Rathmore on the Cork and Kerry border in north west County Cork. It is a most important coarse and game angling river which provides good fishing for brown trout.
The River Blackwater is approximately 160km long, and some of the tributaries that feed this river provide good fishing for Brown Trout. In the Fermoy area it provides good coarse angling primarily for roach and dace.
The main water above the town is the Barnane Walk and the waters upstream of the walk. This is an amenity walk that starts at the town bridge in Fermoy, and runs west, upstream on the southern bank of the river.
Access to the Barnane walk is excellent, and the access is also suitable for disabled anglers.
