Lough Derg

There is very little coarse fishing at the moment on Derg but some good pike angling is being enjoyed by tourist anglers in the Portumna area with one German reporting 2 fish,1×1.6 mtrs, 1×1.3 for a day’s fishing.

Not fishing well at the moment from Banagher down to Portumna as a lot of the fish still have to spawn yet, but anglers are expecting things to improve when spawning has taken place.

River Brosna:

Reports from anglers say that some Mayfly fishing is been enjoyed on some sections of the Brosna particularly in the Pollagh and Ferbane areas.

Little Brosna and Camcor Rivers:

Few enough anglers fishing these rivers at the moment though some fish were reported from the lower end of the Little Brosna by anglers last week. No Croneen have arrived yet but local anglers think the first of these lake fish should be arriving over the next few weeks.

A reminder to all anglers fishing  Pallas Lake, the Bosna, Little Brosna and Camcor systems that they require an up to date permit.
