Fishing activity on Lough Corrib has been quiet of late, with very few boats out. However, some anglers who ventured out on the Lough during the week were rewarded with nice catches.

Nonaim Lodge reported on anglers having success on the dap and while trolling: Marie Helen Nguyen and Yvon Gauthier, Canada, had 5 trout (4 released) while dapping, average size at 1.25 lbs. Also on the dap Kathleen and Mike Hennessy, US, had two fine trout of 2.25 lbs. and 2.75 lbs. Belgian angler, Robert Wolters, boated two very nice trout of 3.25 lbs. and 6 lbs. while trolling.

However, 10 year old Patrick Borowski, Dublin, was crowning his fishing trip to Lough Corrib with a fine 6.25 lbs. salmon he caught when out fishing with his father Andrzej who himself had a 5.5 lbs. salmon earlier in the week. They also caught and released 6 trout and broke in a large trout while trolling flies.
