ANGLING

Salmon - Drowes:

Dropping for much of last week and with little rain in the area only five salmon were reported; Lough Melvin: Four; Moy: Water levels dropped but conditions remained favourable for angling and fresh double-figure spring fish were landed.

Carrowmore Lake:

Despite the cold and gusty northerly winds, anglers enjoyed good spring salmon fishing - 21 fish reported with over half released.

Delphi:

The mountains that frame the fishery were topped with snow but water levels were still low and very cold. But fish were in fair form with 11 salmon landed.

Laune:

Perfect water levels but only a few sea trout reported

Lough Currane:

11 salmon and 2 sea trout around 6 lbs. each reported.

Bandon:

Four to last Sunday week; Lee: Two good fish of 13 lbs and 14 lbs.

Munster Blackwater:

Fish landed at Ballyduff Bridge, Fortwilliam and Glenda Powell’s Blackwater Salmon Fishery beats.

Trout - Melvin:

Cool conditions, few fly life evident.

Lough Arrow:

Only sheltered bays saw sporadic hatches of duckfly and some olives; Lough Corrib: Unseasonably cold. Olives were hatching but fish are slow to switch on to them. Wetfly and buzzer fishing most effective.

Lough Sheelin:

Temperatures below zero recorded. Some good fish in the 4-5 lbs class; Emy Lough and Lough Rowan: Stocked fisheries are producing some rewarding sport.

Sea - Arklow:

The Dublin-based Blackrock SAC fished a competition at South Beach, on Sunday week. Mostly small fish were landed and whiting was the main target.

West Cork:

Charter boat MV Tigger, Clonakilty took advantage of recent calm seas and despite the cool temperature plenty of fish were caught. Best of these was a 12 lb. pollack.

Waterville:

Bass are coming to soft plastics fished deep and slow. John Quinlan says that as water temperatures are still cool this is the tactic of choice at the moment.

Coarse - Grand Canal:

The Prosperous Open was fished on Sunday week in cold conditions. The winning weight was over 7 lbs. More exciting was the quality of some of the fish landed. In particular rudd to 1½ lbs caused quite a stir.

Lough Muckno:

Naas and District Anglers fished their Intermediate Pairs competition. Most anglers made up modest enough weights though there were a couple of 4 kg. bags recorded. In the last couple of days conditions for coarse anglers seemed to have improved.

Lanesborough:

Some really stunning fishing with weights to over 100 lbs reported. Roach to over 1 lb and bream to nearly 8 lbs.

Melview Lodge:

Tourist anglers fishing with Kevin Lyons have been getting some great pike fishing in the Longford area. A few 20s.

Lough Derg:

A number of 100cm plus pike have been landed in the past weeks.

Lough Gowna:

Lough Gowna and Upper Erne Angling Association held a junior competition last Sunday week, with 16 boats and 32 children participating. Overall heaviest bag was 53 lbs. 10 ozs.

Lough Ree:

Incredible result from the International Pike Festival and World Cup. According to the organisers this was without doubt, the best festival yet with 20 pike landed over the 100cm mark, many of which would have made 20 lbs. Each of the daily winners were over the 110 cm mark, equivalent to approximately 30lbs.
