Colin Folan reports from Lough Inagh for the week ending July 29th:

The Sea Trout keep on coming!  177 Sea Trout were reported for the week to 2.5lbs and 7 Salmon were caught for 54 rod days.  Nearly all the fish were taken from the lake, as there is medium to low water in the river beats at time of writing.  Weather prospects look good for the coming days with large quantities of rain forecast for tomorrow(Tuesday).

Notable catches for the week included, Michael Heery and William Hamilton fished Inagh for a day and boated 29 Sea Trout and 2 Char, on a Green Dabbler, Fr. Ronan and a Snow White.  John Roche(Galway) and partner boated 16 Sea Trout on Green Peters.  John Ryan(Clare) and Chuck Adams(USA) recorded 15 Sea Trout to 2.25lbs on Green Peters and Sean McEvoy(Mayo) landed 12 Sea Trout and a 5lbs Grilse on a variety of patterns.  Robert Kelly (Dublin) took a 4.5lbs Grilse on a Fr. Ronan and 5 Sea Trout for a day on Inagh.  There were first ever Salmon for Dublin couple Frank and Svetlana Lavery, for their 2 days on Inagh.  Frank had a 5lbs Grilse on a Silver Doctor, and Svetlana had a 2.5lbs fish on a Bloody Butcher.   One angler told me that he broke in a Salmon in excess of 20lbs during the week on Inagh!
