Emy Lake Continues to Fish Well
May 11th, 2012 | by David Byrne
Emy and District Anglers PRO Enda Fields reports this weeks that Emy Lake in Emyvale Co Monaghan continues to fish extremely well. Anglers report that some lovely brownies of 3-4 lb have been caught by club members Martin Mc Kenna and Giedrius Vilpauskas.
The lake is very accessible with a new walk way around the beautiful shoreline. Shore fishing is very popular which shelves gently into the lake but a life jacket is recommended at all times. Boat hire is available with a jetty and secure carpark situated along the north western side of the lake.
The lake is nearby tothe village of Emyvale on the main N2 Dublin – Derry road network. In Emyvale there are shops, pubs restaurants and close by is the charming village of Glaslough.
Back to the fishing – There is alot of fly life showing at the moment and all different types of fly patterns and methods are producing fish. The bag limit is two fish per day and the club are encouraging anglers to adopt a put and take approach. Some of the flies worth a try for the month of May on Emy are the Mayfly, Gosling, Connemara black, Sooty Olive, Green Peter Silver Invicta & Green Peter to name a few. Late evening is a good time to try sedge patterns & buzzers. The club will soon be holding its annual 2012 Eugene Muilligan Memorial Cup Competition. More details soon.
