Three salmon from Lough Melvin last week

March 14th, 2017 | by

Lough Melvin was fairly quiet with only a few boats venturing forth each day but the first two Melvin salmon of the season were caught this week.

Brian McEvoy’s salmon caught on Melvin last week.

Brian McEvoy’s salmon caught on Melvin last week. This is the 2nd Salmon caught on Melvin for 2017 and the 1st for the Rossinver Fishery

On Thursday, Stephen Kennedy recorded the 1st salmon of the season. This was a 9½lb salmon caught trolling at the sunken island near the County River. On Saturday, Brian McEvoy recorded the 2nd salmon of the season.  There was also a 9½lb salmon caught trolling at Wards Point.

The forecast for the 1st 4 days of the week is for fine settled weather and I would expect a few boats to venture out in such weather.
