The Rye Lake report by Rob Love
While fishing from the bank is an option the best way to cover this water is from the hotel Sheelin boat – this can be arranged through the hotel.
Special mention must be given to Andy Scully who landed and released a magnificent pike on Tuesday morning. Andy was fishing at the lower end of the lake between the island and the salmon weir where the water is deeper. Andy also caught and released two other fish to 8lb.
Please note that both trout and pike fishing are by fly only on this stretch of water from 1st March.
Tickets / permits should be purchased at the hotel main reception prior to fishing. Parking is at the boathouse on the lake. Please respect the wishes of golfers and stay off greens and Tee areas as they can become badly cut up when fishing activity takes place on them.
