Carrowmore Lake

Carrowmore Lake had its best week of the season so far! Fishing was excellent and many anglers enjoyed “red letter” days during the week. Several boats had bags of 4 salmon and more.

Davy Elliot & Andy Latimer, both Northern Ireland, had the best bag of the week with a total of 8 salmon (6 released) for a day’s fishing. Most fish averaged five to six lbs. However, there were also some nice double figure fish caught including a 10.5 lbs. salmon for Gary Lloyd, Westport and a cracking thirteen pounder (released) for Mark Corps, Enniskillen. Other successful anglers included Vincent Rigney, Westport with a nine pounder and Ronny Mayock, Monaghan who had fish of 8 and 10 lbs.

Most successful flies included Black Dabbler, Clan Chief, Golden Olive Bumble, Green Peter and various Shrimp patterns. Fishing on Carrowmore Lake can be booked on
