Corbet Lough is a premier trout fishery with great facilities for local anglers and tourists alike.
Corbet Lough is a premier 70 acre trout fishery set in the scenic Co Down countryside against the backdrop of the Mourne Mountains. It offers fantastic angling opportunities for local anglers and tourists alike.
The facilities at Corbet Lough include a boating dock and jetty, complete with six fishing boats and one wheelyboat for use by disabled anglers. There are three fishing stands with wheelchair access, tow timber shelters and three angling platforms to the front restricted concession shore. There is also a Boat Attentants fishing lodge with toilet provision.
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. Successful early season fly patterns include a selection of lures and nymphs such as the Humungous, Viva and Montana Nymph. From June onward flies include Buzzer, Sedge Patterns, Daddies and Hoopers. A couple of good year round fly patterns are the Hare's Ear Nymph and the Pheasant Tail Nymph.
The lake, has a 3 fish per day per angler bag limit and a minimum takeable size of 12 inches. While anglers cannot bring boats, six boats are available, plus one boat suitable for disabled users for hire. 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 full list of restrictions will be available when purchasing the £15 (2014 price) per rod per day ticket. A DCAL game fishing rod license is required for adults and juveniles over 12 years, as is a Banbridge Angling Club Day Ticket. Day Tickets are available from the Boat Attendants Office at Corbet Lough, the nearby Anglers Rest, Aughnacloy Road, Corbet and Coburns Tackle Shop, Scarva St, Banbridge
