June 1st, 2012 | by Nancy Hearne
Good perch sizes and numbers caught in Derg yesterday. The East Clare Lakes are also very popular with tourist pike anglers at present.
The Fergus is a mixed stock fishery with good pike angling in areas.
East Clare Rivers and lakes
Pike anglers are generally not that happy at the moment on Lower Derg as it is slow, however, one 33 lb Pike was caught near Mountshannon trolling.
It is worth mentioning that Tourist French anglers at Killaloe have been reported to be very happy with the pike angling on Derg in the past week.
Coarse fishing – there were great catches of Perch observed at Twomilegate, however bream are late moving into the shallows for shore coarse angling. Lough Bridget is not fishing well at present
Rossmore, Coose Bay, Woodford and Cloonmoylan area (North Derg Clare)
Pike angling is slow in the North Derg Clare area at the moment.
