Colin Folan reports that there is no shortage of water at Lough Inagh and the anglers are meeting fish…

19/08: At time of writing we have plenty of water and plenty of fish running the system.  Angling effort is low at present for the good water we have, and those who are fishing are meeting fish.   2 Salmon and 26 Sea Trout were recorded for 40 rod days.


Henry Molloy(Dublin) fished the Derryclare Butts on his first ever day fly fishing and managed a 4.5lbs grilse on a Silver Rat.  Paul Caislin and Peter Gray(Mayo) boated 8 Sea Trout for a day on Inagh, top flies this week were a Kate McClaren and a Silver Daddy.

Go fishing…

Loughs Derryclare and Inagh lie in the lovely Inagh Valley with the Twelve Pins (Bens) of Connemara rising steeply to the west, and the Maumturk Mountain range to the east. There are two short connecting rivers, which contain four river beats. The fishery has spring salmon, grilse, sea trout and large indigenous brown trout. In recent years the fishery has seen a resurgence of fish numbers, and in 2010 – 2012, the fishery has produced Salmon to 15lbs, Sea Trout to 5lbs and Brown Trout to 12lbs.
