Drennec Lake, located in the heart of the Monts d’Arrée, in the Finistère region of Brittany, is accessible to fly anglers until 31 October 2018.

The fishing season has now been extended to December 31 and the late season (September 20 to December 31st) is only open to fly fishing only on the entire body of water. With the more moderate temperatures, surface fishing with dry flies is now at its peak. Daddies (daddy long legs) on the water allow for some great lough-style fishing and should last until the first frosty nights, then followed by fry feeding season which usually attracts the bigger fish to the lake’s banks.

The autumn months are usually quite mild here in the Monts d’Arrée, with great to excellent conditions for fly fishing, up until the end of the season.

Wild fish populations have never been this good at Drennec Lake ever since its inception and catch results per angler per day are better than those had at the better British reservoirs.


I now offer guided boat fishing using my 19’ Sheelin Irish drift boat and/or boat rental with my powered 15’ Sheelin Irish drift boat.

If you need to work on your lake fishing skills, improve your casting abilities, would like to discover the subtleties of technical surface fishing (dry fly, wet fly, nymph fishing) , master fishing strategies and techniques or will want to get in depth-knowledge of fry feeding angling techniques, my guiding can definitely help you. I will see that you learn leader construction with droppers using the appropriate knots as well as other advice to help you discover the lake’s biodiversity.
