Anglers turned out in large numbers to wet a line on Lough Rowan on April fool’s day this year. The joke, however, was entirely on the trout as club members experienced some exceptional fishing in the warm conditions. This was clearly the best attendance at the fishery for a number of years with some rods catching over 40 trout on various methods. Large chironomid hatches saw spectacular surface activity throughout the day with the catch of the day going to one young angler from Longford who caught an overwintered rainbow trout of 5.5lb. This fish was sportingly returned to grow even larger!
Anglers are asked to fill in catch return forms at the fishery sign located on the main slipway. This will enable accurate catch reports to be published to include succesful tactics for fellow members.
