1 day to trout fish in midlands?

Can anyone help me find a place to fish for 1 day? I'll be in the Longford, Athlone, Castlepollard area from June 1 til June 5 & would love to take a day & fish for trout, but have no idea where to go, or how to rent equipment. We're 2 adventurous young,senior citizens. Any suggestions? Thanks

I think your best bet is Lough Sheelin, not far from Castlepollard. See http://www.loughsheelinanglers.ie/index.htm

You'll almost certainly need a permit.

Permits are required, but are usually cheap and easy to get. It's covered in the url I gave.

Thank you, very interesting site, maybe we'll try for the salmon out by Co. Mayo instead.

Salmon fishing will be very expensive. There are some great Trout streams in County Mayo; I didn't reply to your 'post' about Trout fishing in 'the midlands' because I didn't know what that included. Google on Foxford fishing for Salmon fishing guides (guilleys).
