Great summer trout fishing on Corrib
August 15th, 2012 | by Kevin Crowley
Tom Kelly reports that fishing in the Oughterard area has continued to produce very good sport, but very few anglers have been out to enjoy it. Joe Healy and Danny Curran had several good fish during the week, with many more released. They commented that they found the fishing to be better than ever! The Goldberg party had 7 fish on the dap over 2 days, best fish 3lbs. Darren Curran from Carlow had the best fish of the week, a fine trout of over 7lbs caught on wet fly. James and Aidan Kelly had 4 trout for a day to wet fly patterns, while Jimmy Nugent and friend from Northern Ireland fished for 3 days and landed 14 trout for approx. 22lbs fishing wet fly and dapping.
August and September are usually very good months on Corrib, and since fishing has remained so good over the usually quiet summer months, fishing prospects for the next few weeks look very good.
