The river Shannon provides many good fishing stands around the Tarmonbarry area. There are some pegs cut out near Whitehall church on the Tarmonbarry-Roosky road and big catches of bream, hybrid and roach are common.
There is a bay about 500 yards upstream of the bridge which fishes well for quality roach and bream, although boats can cause a problem in the summer.
The Camlin river on the N5 near Clondra has some fair fishing for roach, bream and some tench.
The Feorish river is located about two miles from Tarmonbarry and fishes well for hybrids, roach bream and tench in the early part of the season.
