Angling Report / Feedback:

 

Pike

Anglers are reporting that Pike fishing is going very well recently in the area, locals and visitors to the area have been very pleased with their catches.

The positive reports are coming back with fishermen stating that a knowledge of the area is very beneficial to Pike anglers given the size of Lough Derg with a lot of Anglers opting for deeper fishing areas.  Dromineer has been praised by a number of Anglers recently for its abundance of large pike.  A French Angler named Cedric caught a Pike in the Portumna area weighing approximately 30lbs and was delighted with his catch as it was the biggest of his season so far.

Coarse

Coarse Angling is holding its own throughout the area with anglers being pleased with catches.  Meelick is doing quite well in recent weeks and stocks of roach and bream are plentiful in the area.   Portumna has plenty of bream at the minute and Clonfert is also fishing well with one Roach caught weighing over 2lbs.  The Clonfert area is fishing well in general according to one local angler who was very happy with his catches of Roach, Perch and some hybrids caught on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th of June.

 

Trout

Trout angling has not been as productive this week in the area but there are reports of 1lb to 2lb trout being caught around the Silver Island area on Sunday the 18th of June.

 

Bio Security:

Again, we would kindly ask all who use water courses to please consider biosecurity measures for themselves in order to help stop the spread of invasive species in and out of the water.
