Welcome to the Oughterard Anglers & Boatmen Association
Lough Corrib sits in the heart of Co. Galway providing some of the best wild brown trout and salmon fishing in Ireland and Europe. The Corrib, as it is affectionately known, lies mainly in Co. Galway with beautiful Connemara on its western shoreline, and borders Co. Mayo to the north.
The Oughterard Anglers and Boatmen Association was established over a hundred years ago by a group of enthusiastic anglers whose ambition it was to promote the sport of angling in the West of Ireland. To the present-day angling is still a big part of the social fabric of Oughterard and its people and offers both a way of life for many and a great escape for many more.
The vast expanses of Lough Corrib, over thirty miles long, combined with the ever-changing weather conditions offer an infinite variety of opportunities to experience that which is most sacred to the keen angler, the thrill of hooking a truly wild creature whose crafty elusiveness and natural beauty makes each catch, and release if you wish so, a truly memorable event. With an island for every day of the year, The Corrib offers numerous bays and shallows for that perfect drift when casting a fly.
