Middle Lake is an irregular triangular shape (approx. 85 x 50 metres), hidden from view of the lodges by woodland and home to carp, bream, roach, rudd and golden tench.

The action begins in earnest with the initial flood soon after the third week in June when massive runs of eager Grilse, Seatrout, and Finnock arrive and in good water give hectic sport. Every fresh water thereafter will bring fresh fish with Summer Salmon up to 20lbs being a possibility at any stage up till the finish of the season. Peak time for fresh Grilse is typically mid July with August and September delivering outstanding sport from big numbers of resident fish along side the new arrivals. Evening and nightime fishing in low water at any stage from mid June to late August can give heart-stopping angling for Seatrout and Finnock.

The final weeks of the season supply potentially epic sport and in September of 2000 some 70 Salmon, like over a dozen double figure fish, mostly on the fly, had been returned despite low angling stress. The total catch for the 2000 season was 210 Salmon and 108 Seatrout with significantly less than 200 guests! A very good catch ratio by any standards. Ideal Salmon of the season was 13 1/2lbs and the very best Seatrout was 2 three/4 lbs.

Whilst on board we did wander around the ship to view the various sights of the Bay, from the open sea to our appropriate to the bustling city of Dublin to our left. The Bay was busy with multi-coloured sailing ships of a medley of sizes dotting the bay, auto ferries and import vessels all adding to the Bay's visitors. Downstairs you could warm up with hot beverage if you wished, although the intermittent hot sun warmed you up a lot ahead of the subsequent onslaught of a cold and rather breath-shuddering wind!
