Angling on Lough Conn remains slow but steady, although recent changes in weather conditions have hampered efforts some what. Once again Ronnie Chambers, Belfast had success while fishing Massbrook, with four trout to the buzzer. Mick McNeeley, Mullingar had one of 1.5lbs on a Bibio with Brendan Breslin also landing one of 1.5lbs off Brankwansha shore.
Peter Roche, Cloghans, had three to wet flies, his best 1.5lbs and fishing out of Pontoon Bridge Hotel, Jonathan Glennon, Ennis, had three to an octopus. Jack Mellet, also fishing out of Pontoon Bridge had one to a Green Peter off Glass Island, while at Enniscoe, Ian Wise had one trout of 1.5lbs to a buzzer.
