White Lake covers an area of 54 hectares, is 5km south west of Ballybay and is approached off the R183 for Baird’s Shore & Lisgillen and off the R190 for Anny. There are clear banks at Baird’s Shore and Anny with limited bank space at Lisgillen. There are also fishing stands located at Lisgillen and Anny. Car parking is available at all three locations and boats may be launched at Baird’s Shore and Anny. The water is generally shallow with maximum depths to 6m. For pike fishing here the use of a boat is recommended. The water has good stocks of small to medium sized pike but fish in excess of 20lbs are recorded annually. Expect bream, skimmers, roach, hybrids, tench, pike and perch. A featureless shoreline belies the quality of fishing on the part of the Dromore River system. Big tench have been featuring in mixed catches for a long time and they can be caught on all methods and baits. If you want to catch a decent net of bream do consider some serious pre-baiting. Access is good and there are no long walks.
