Eugeen Fagan and Andy Young on Lough Lene
Eugeen Fagan and Andy Young on Lough Lene

Lough Lene closed for trout fishing last Friday September 30th.The Lake was buzzing with Anglers for the last few days, and I spent 3 days trashing flies out on Lene. It produced good fish, and Noel Fitzgerald from Dunshaghlin Co. Meath had 2 lovely brown trout on Thursday evening. Eugene Fagan and Andy Young were also in the thick of the action, and boated six fish on Thursday. On Friday the heavens opened, and we were truly soaked on the last day. I had two nice fish on Friday, and that finished my season just nicely on Lene. The lake will remain open all winter for pike and perch fishing, and these fish species will provide excellent sport for lure and fly anglers.
