Lough Ennell Is the most southerly of the midland Loughs, lying to the south of Mullingar it is a shallow lake thus almost all areas in it will produce trout. These fish are pure silver with dark spots and grow to a large size. Locally fish under 2lb are returned, its not surprising the Irish record brown trout, 26lb 2ozs, came from this lake. The main drawback on this lake is that the fish are hard to catch. The best of the fishing is either to the Mayfly or the Sedge hatches in May, June and July. Towards the end of the season fry imitations can work well. The season on Ennell is March 1st until October 12th. A Shannon Region Fishery Permit is required for this lough.
