Carrowmore Lake

Seamus Henry reports that Carrowmore Lake produced very good sport early in the week before the northerly gales blew up and spoiled fishing for the rest of the week. Brian Moore landed a 9 lb. salmon, and then caught and released another nice fish. Jim Ruane from Castlebar had a 9 lb. fish, and also caught and released a fine 12 lb. salmon. Matt Bateman had a fish of 9 lb., and Vincent Rigney took one of 7 lb.

Pat Foley caught and released 2 salmon, and Cavan angler Gene Brady had a 6 lb. fish, and released another one.  The following day Gene returned and had another 6lbs salmon. Andy Latimer from Enniskillen landed a nice 8 lb. fish and returned another, while Frank Hughes and Gerry Dooley from Dublin both had a fish of 8 lb. apiece. Larry Mitchell from Belmullet caught a 6 lb. salmon as well. From Wednesday the winds picked up and angling was curtailed on the lake by poor water clarity until the last day or two, and Seamus reports that fish are being caught again at the moment.
