The Lough Beg area can provide excellent pike fishing having a sluggish flow and some shallow bays. Pike are also found in the deeper navigational channel running through the Lough.
Access to Lough Beg is most convenient by boat from Newferry or Toome.
The most successful method is spinning and trawling but to catch big fish, dead-baiting is recommended.
Local anglers find pollan, mackerel, rainbow trout and roach to be the best bait.
Fly-fishing for pike has increased in popularity in recent years and can offer exciting top water sport in the summer.
