Lough Waskel the Rosses Donegal
The Rosses Fishery is located amongst beautiful scenery on the West Coast of County Donegal and comprises around 130 loughs and associated rivers. Dungloe town lies in the centre of the fishery and has plentiful accommodation and all the fishing is within a 5-mile radius. The fishery is made up of six salmon/sea/brown trout systems with isolated loughs interspersed throughout the whole fishery.
This system comprises the Loughs Nacloghmore, Aschuller and Waskel, with Waskel being the one that is fished. It is a long deep narrow lough of 85 acres with a good stock of brown trout. Fly hatches are scarce and the fish prey heavily on sticklebacks. This means the trout are larger than average.
The lough is also stocked with Triploid Rainbow Trout with an average weight of 2.5 pounds and as large as 12 pounds weight. Regular stockings take place to ensure the lough retains its heavy headage of fish and the lough is open all year round. Encounter these free rising Triploids and you will not be disappointed.
