Salmon to 14lb caught and released on Drowes during a mixed week

March 31st, 2015 | by

Anglers on the Drowes experienced mixed conditions last week, Shane Gallagher reports on all the catches:

27 March It has been a pretty mixed week on both the fishing and weather front. Saturday and Sunday were dry, bright days with good conditions apart from the sunshine. Despite the largest number of rods out since opening day, only one fish was recorded over the weekend, Pauric Deeny’s fish on fly from the Spa Well.

During the week fishing fared a little better with only Wednesday drawing a blank. The week turned occasionally very cold and heavy rain on Wednesday raised water levels which currently stand at 0.638 metres.

Among those to record fish during the week were D. Maguire who had a 7lbs fish on black flying c from the Old Sea Pool, B. Mc Evoy who had a 10lbs fish on spinner from Lennox’s, A. Farrey who had an 8lbs fish on fly from Scot’s Corner, D. Mc Neice who had a 7.5lbs fish from the Grazings on prawn, J. O’ Connor who had a 6lbs fish on Willie Gunn from the Old Sea Pool, S. Scott who had a 9lbs fish on prawn from the Blackwater and M. King who released a 7lbs fish from the Grazings on prawn.
