Angling Guide and journalist Mick Flanagan reports on better trout fishing on Lough Ennell in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath.

MIDLAND PIKE ANGLERS ON REE. On Saturday last September 29th I ventured to Ree and competed in the Midland Pike Anglers open boat trout competition. It was hard going and only a few trout took the bait. Top Rod was, 2nd place was Tony Doolin, and 3rd place was Jonathan Devine. Jonathan works with Vodaphone, and sorted out my phone on Ree.Yes the reports and photographs are certainly coming on line now. I got chatting to Joe McDermott of Midland Pike anglers, and some members are heading to Ukraine this week for the World Championship pike competition. Michael Dalton of Ballymahon is heading over with Joe and we wish the Midland Pike Anglers all the best.

LAKELAND ANGLERS. Next Sunday September 7th Lakeland Anglers will hold their end of season competition. It will be fished on Owel, Ennell, and Derravaragh, with starting time at 11 am, usual check in points. Weight –in in Caffreys Lounge at 8pm.  Its going to be a cracking day, and a good evening in Caffreys. Many prizes are up for grabs from all three lakes, and certainly worth fishing on the day.
