Trolling for trout tough going on Lough Derg
April 5th, 2012 | by Myles Kelly
A total of eleven fish for thirty rods were weighed in at the end of a trout trolling competition on Lough Derg on Sunday last (April 1st). The event, sponsored by Gerry O’ Brien of Irish Slate Supplies, and hosted by Garrykennedy Fishing Club, was won by John Kennedy with a trout of 2lbs 8ozs. The club will host another trout trolling competition on this Sunday, April 8th.
Fish over 6 lbs caught
Sean Collins had a 6 lbs ½ ozs trout to win the competition hosted by Ballina-Killaloe and District Anglers Association on Lough Derg on Sunday last (April 1st). The second heaviest trout (1 lb 5 ozs) was caught by Shane Lancaster.
There are reports of the odd mayfly coming off the lake. With the current cold conditions it won’t come to much this weekend but the expectation is that it will be early again on Derg this year again.
