Lough Gill sees a few salmon caught

April 12th, 2018 | by

Lough Gill had its first salmon of the season a couple of weeks ago after the lake failed to produce a fish for the hardy anglers who turned out to fish the St Patricks Competiton in March. Peter McKenna was the lucky angler to score first this year and he did so with an 8lb 2oz salmon.

A couple of more salmon were added to the tally from the lake on 02 April.  George Conway had an 8lb 6oz salmon and Peter McKenna had a fish of 7lb 6oz.

Lough Gill is about 8 km or 5 miles long and 2 km or 1 mile wide. The Lough Gill system consists of the river Bonet that flows into the eastern end of the lake and the River Garavogue which drains the lake to the west near Sligo Town.
