Lough Beltra opened on the 20th March and it was Vincent Rigney who claimed the honors for first salmon of the season, landing a salmon estimated at 6lbs on opening day. This was followed by Ben Baynes who boated one of 8lbs on the 21st March. Jonathan Murray enjoyed good fishing on the weekend of the 24th/25th March, boating three fresh salmon, all estimated at over 10lbs. The past week has seen little angling activity on the lake as weather conditions have not been suitable. Anglers fishing Lough Beltra from the Glenisland Co-op side are reminded to flush their engines before angling in the newly installed bio-security tanks.
