Lowrys Lake lies 2 miles outside Armagh on the A51 Hamiltonsbawn road. It is a 28 acre lake which offers excellent fishing for brown and rainbow trout. The shore fishing is excellent and the access is generally good however wading is not advisable on the east side of the lake because of the deep water and sudden drop offs. Wading, though is permitted on the lake is not always necessary as the fish in Lowry’s Lake feed close to the shore and can be easily covered with flies. Stocking takes place in the late Spring and early Summer, weather and water temperature dependant. The lake regularly produces both brown and rainbow in excess of 6lb every season. 2010 seen a brown trout of over 8 lb caught and released. Lowry’s fishes well throughout the season although May and June are reputed to be the best months with trout rising to the hatching buzzers especially in the late evening. Early season will see excellent fishing to anglers using sinking lines, gold head hares ears and a wide variety of lures. From April onwards many anglers change to floating lines, nymphs, buzzers and dry flies with often brilliant catches being reported. Car parking on the Hamiltonsbawn Road is limited to about 8 – 10 cars in lay bys close to the lake entrance. A car park can be found by driving from the lake back along the A51 and taking the first road on the left past the lake called the Drumbee More Road, continue on this narrow road about a quarter of a mile and take the first turn on the left before the farm. This narrow country road will take you down to the car park at the bottom of the lake on the left hand side though the gate.
