Donamon is set in one of the most beautiful sections of the mid River Suck and is located in the heart of the River Suck Valley region. This is a sheltered venue where the river is fairly wide, rows of mature poplar trees and forestry line the opposite bank from the facility with a mix of bog and pasture land adjacent. The river here is quite deep but generally is of uniform depth along the fishing section. Most species of coarse are present with roach and hybrids being the most predominant. Pike also abound and are often large fish up to 25lbs plus often encountered, and occasional fish of 30lbs plus are possible.
