Birr Angling Report by Pat McDonnell

Lough Derg – Paul Burke reports that fishing has been slow in the Killaloe area, though 3 French anglers managed 3 fish to 9 lbs on Saturday last with Jerk baits, while 2 Latvians reported 1 pike for 15 lb. upstream of Portumna bridge.

Shannon River  – Very little reported since the rise in water levels and local anglers are not expecting any improvement until the flood recedes.
