Emy and District Anglers PRO Enda Fields reports this week that following the very wet weather, anglers have taken to boat fishing as the level of the water has risen very quickly in recent days. The up and down water level conditions have played havoc with bank fishing over the last few days and boat fishing has presented best angling opportunities. This situation is not usual for any lake including Emy in Co Monaghan as after the hot weather spell trout have moved down to cooler waters to feed. Hopefully over the next week or so the cool water will bring trout back up to the surface to feed and provide the fantastic fishing that was had by many anglers since the start of March.

The club are asking all members to please practice CATCH & RELEASE . This is in the best interests for the lake and the club recommends all anglers If taking fish to please limit to 1 or maximum 2 PER WEEK.All anglers are advised if booking a boat do so early and not to leave it to the last minute as presently, due to high water levels, demand is out-stripping supply.
