Kevin Lyons from Melview Lodge reports on some good coarse fishing reports from the Upper Shannon area.

Course fishing in the upper Shannon area has been good the last couple of weeks, due to the weather and temperatures a lot of fish have been feeding.  Kevin Lyons of Melview Lodge Longford was out and about speaking to anglers who had some good catches of Bream, Hybrids, Roach, Rudd and Tench. Brendan Aherne and friend James Wright had a mixed bag weighting in at 160 lb.

14 year old Connor Carter while out fishing for a few hours with his father managed to catch Roach, Perch and some nice Rudd.

Larry Kelly, record pike holder for lake from Trim turned his attention to tench and was rewarded with a  cracking catch of quality tench while fishing a day long session from dawn till dusk.

The weather is said to be up and down over the next few days but I think the rain could freshen things up a little.  Tune in next week for some more info of what’s going on.
