Lough Melvin was fairly quiet once again this week with few boats venturing out. There were good quality sonaghan caught but rods had to work for their fish. Saturday was a busy day however with the Lough hosting 2 competitions. These were the Seamus Doherty Memorial Pairs Competition fished out of the Garrison Pier and The Breffni Club’s annual end of season competition fished out of Breffni Pier, Kinlough. There were good sonaghan caught over the day.
