Pike angling guide Michael Flanagan reports:

DOWN BY THE RIVER SIDE. The Mighty Inny River was in mint condition last week, and I ventured out with Uncle Pat Keenaghan to try and hook- up with some Pike and Perch. It was a beautiful day, dry and crisp, and we only had one good shower of rain. The fishing was slow in certain stretches, but traveling by boat, you can move up and down the River quite fast and reach your Hot Spots. We had some small pike on a variety of lures, and I hit a cracker well into the double figures. These River pike fight very hard in the currant, and the fish was in mint condition. Coming back up River and through Lough Iron we stopped for a while to spin for pike, and Pat caught a beautiful Perch in only 2ft of water. If you are planning a trip down the Inny, be careful as many Rocks, and high silt banks are scattered across the River. Make sure you have your Lifejacket, and Mobile phone charged, just incase you run into difficulty. Access to Lough Iron, is only by boat, and its a very shallow Lake.
