Many anglers continue to enjoy good sport on Lough Conn, despite a drop in angling effort on the lake. Fishing out of Pontoon Bridge Hotel, John Costello and Ian Quinn, Co. Kildare, boated six good sized trout and many smaller fish, while fishing the south end of Conn using Olives. Jonathan Brady and Anthony Quinlan, Belfast, averaged four trout per day over three days, all on wet Olives, while New York pair Brian Moran and Alex Suza landed two each over two days, their best fish an impressive 3.2lbs.
