Stick to the deeps is the way on Mask as fishing picks up

August 16th, 2017 | by

Ronan Cusack reports a welcome improvement in fishing on Mask over the past few days as temperatures dropped slightly. Anglers fishing the deep water across the middle last weekend had better news than previous weeks, with plenty of Daphnia-feeding trout coming to the fly.

Peter Byrne Chairman of Lough Carra Anglers organised the annual Carra/Mask water protection catch and release competition on Sunday last. A total of 46 anglers competed and 27 fish were weighed in. First place went to Mick Dunne from Tourmakeady with 5 fish measuring 180cm. In second place was Basil Shields from Galway with 3 fish measuring 101cm and in third position was Johnny Moroney from Ennis with 3 fish measuring 100cm. The longest fish for the competition was won by Junior McGahon from Castlebar with a fish measuring 52cm.

The forecast for the coming week is for more broken weather so hopefully the fishing will continue to improve.
