Good conditions but not easy in Rathcon Winter League

October 23rd, 2017 | by

Dermot Page reports on the Rathcon Winter League first round, fished at the weekend…

Today was the 1st of the 2017/18 winter league qualifiers. 20 anglers fished with the top 5 qualifying for the final next spring. Despite good fishing conditions the day was tough with only 35 landed but a lot more lost. Many thanks to Southside Angling for sponsoring a prize. The results were:

  • 1st Joe Winder – 6 fish
  • 2nd Marius Lincevicius – 5 fish
  • 3rd Sergej Kapustin – 4 fish
  • 4th Aidan Heffernan – 3 fish
  • 5th Darius Simcus – 3 fish

The biggest fish landed was 59 cm by Marius.

Dermot Page,

Go fishing…

Rathcon Lake is 8.5 acres and is stocked with top quality rainbow trout. The lake is fly fishing only and designed to allow maximum fishing so that 90% of the water can be covered. The average depth is 10ft with deep holes of up to 20ft in places. The fishery is open all year round and is home to a wide range of fly life, in particular buzzers, sedges, hawthorn and daddylonglegs, all providing excellent dry fly fishing, especially in the summer evenings.
