Is located off the N2 on the eastern side of Castleblayney. This lake covers an area of 325 hectares with depths to 20m. There are a number of well established fishing locations on the lake including White island, Black Island, Concra Wood, South Lodge and Toome Point. In addition to pike, Lough Muckno holds good stocks of bream, rudd, roach, hybrids, tench and perch.
The Gas Lake
Is located on the northern end of Castleblayney on the R181 Keady road and is really an extension of Lough Muckno to which a short river connects it. Access is best from the western side from the Keady road. Bank fishing is limited. Care must be taken as the angler is faced by relatively deep water and very soft bottom.
Lies about a mile west of Crossmaglen and is accessed on the Southern side off the Castleblayney/Cullaville (Dundalk) road. Angling for bream, roach, or pike is done mostly from the lakeside amenity area. The border bisects the lake.
Note: Anglers who are fishing this lake from the Northern side are advised that a coarse rod licence and permit are required to fish.
