The Lords Pool
This is the stretch where 17 year old 'Lord Strabane' drowned when fishing from a boat, in 1874.
The Lords Hole is a prized fly fishing pool, for both salmon and sea trout. It is best fished at the start of the season when fish are running or when water levels are too low upstream.
It is relatively easy to get to, we recommend you park at the recreation fields and continue on foot along the disused railway line. Alternatively, parking in the same place you could cross the cricket field diagonally opposite the entrance gate; you can join the fisherman's walk - along the edge of the river bank. Another option is via the same access point for Higgins Streams (see map).
