Weekly update

Drowes continues to fish well for springers

April 6th, 2018 | by

Lindsey Clarke reports on fishing on the River Drowes for the last week.

The river ran at low levels all week with the gauge hovering in and around 0.48 metres. This did not seem to unduly worry the salmon and fish were caught on every day but Saturday (2 hooked and lost). On Monday, Joe Carey recorded an 8lb salmon caught on a fly from the Mill Pool.

Prospects for the coming week look very good once again

 

The Rossinver Fishery on Lough Melvin is also producing some nice fish at the moment, and is well worth a visit.
