The Fortwilliam Fishery offers three and a half miles of double bank salmon and trout fishing over five beats on the river Blackwater and includes the infamous Lismore Castle beat. The fishery enjoys the private and tranquil surroundings of Fortwilliam Estate which extends to four hundred acres. Our beats are interlinked and provide a wide variety of water, suitable for both beginners and the more experienced fishermen. Our river enhancement project is ongoing. The completed work includes the construction of croys, deflectors, rock armouring, the placing of rocks as “salmon lies”, improved access and the deepening of certain stretches.
