    Dublin Fishing ~ West Wicklow

    Rainbow trout fishing near at stocked fisheries


    Close to Dublin, there is excellent rainbow trout fishing.

    On Rathcon farm, located in West Wicklow, close to the village of Grangecon and about five miles from the N9 Dublin/Carlow road, there is a beautiful eight and a half acre lake stocked with top quality rainbow trout where fly fishing is available all year round.

    The lake and fishing hut also offer an ideal setting for evening BBQs where you can relax in the tranquil surroundings with stunning views onto the Wicklow mountains.

    Rathcon Lake is 8.5 acres and is stocked with top quality rainbow trout. The lake is fly fishing only and designed to allow maximum fishing so that 90% of the water can be covered. The average depth is 10ft with deep holes of up to 20ft in places. The fishery is open all year round and is home to a wide range of fly life, in particular buzzers, sedges, hawthorn and daddylonglegs, all providing excellent dry fly fishing, especially in the summer evenings.

    Rathcon Lake's natural appearance and diverse layout sets it apart from other stocked fisheries. The lake is stocked predominantly with triploid rainbows with good fin and tail condition. The fish quickly become accustomed to the lake's abundant feeding and thrive in these conditions, becoming as close to wild as possible. Along with the lush wetland and woodland surroundings overlooked by the Wicklow Mountains, anglers can enjoy a truly special day's fishing.

    At the Wavin Lake at Balrothery Co. Dublin, the Gormanston Anglers offer excellent Rainbow Trout fishing for visitors. They also have brown trout & sea trout fishing available on the Delvin River at Gormanston in County Meath about 36 kilometres drive north from Dublin.
