Poor weather on Corrib but fishing reasonable

Declan Gibbon from our Galway office reports that the week gone by saw less angling activity due to inclement weather conditions. Hopefully the drop in temperature won’t affect the duckfly hatches that shouldn’t be too far away .
On Saturday last Gerry Molloy ( loughcorriboughterard.com ) enjoyed a few hours fishing. He had good success on the brickeen landing four trout with the best being two and a quarter pounds. Gerry also enjoyed a few hours on Sunday afternoon landing two trout. Staying in the Oughterard area Kevin Molloy (087-9604170) reports of reasonably good fishing on the brickeen landing ten fish for three half days with the best fish being two and a half pounds.
In the Birchall area on Tuesday last Friends Mark Colton, Mark Regan and Padraig Costello enjoyed a day’s fishing with Mark landing a beautiful trout on a silver dabbler around three pounds in weight. Mark Regan from Moycullen also had a bit of sport landing a nice trout of a pound and a half.
In the Cong area Frank Costello of Ashford Bay Boat Hire (087-2524253 ) was out for a few hours on Saturday last and landed a fish a pound and a half.
