Roy Craigie reports that the Shean Lodge Fishery has had some good fishing in May with 43 salmon to 17.5lb taken by guests of the Lodge…

We had a very dry spell during April with particularly low water for that time of year, but thankfully the weather changed in early May and the first 2 weeks brought a good run  of Springers resulting in 43 fish caught including 2 grilse during those 2 weeks. All fish were in beautiful condition the heaviest being 17.5lbs with many in the 12lbs to 14lbs range.

Prospects look encouraging for the coming weeks and a number of fish are beginning to show, so hopefully water levels continue favourable.

Go fishing…

Shean Lodge Fishery is an exclusive and stunning game fishing holiday destination in County Mayo, Ireland. Shean Lodge Fishery offers one of the most unique, tranquil and remote areas for angling in Western Europe thanks to its setting in the 12,000 hectare Ballycroy National Park. The fishery is fly fishing only and extends for 8 kms of the Owenduff River, famous for its  run of spring salmon and then later in the year for salmon, grilse and sea trout.

There are some vacancies still available  from mid June onwards on the Shean Lower stretch.
