Angling guide and journalist Mick Flanagan reports on Trout hatchery work going on in the west.

OUGHTERARD TROUT HATCHERY. Midland trout anglers might be a little bit interested with what’s happening in the West Of Ireland. It hard to believe we are already thinking about Febuary 15th when the Western lakes open for trout fishing. We got a lovely e- mail from Kevin Prundy of Oughterard Anglers letting us know what’s happening with their on going hatchery work. It includes some super photographs of trout being stripped, and the fertilized ova are already in the incubation unit, and in the coming months the fry will hatch. Kevin told us Local parents and children where present to see this unique process, which is an educational experience for the public taking place. If any of our trout anglers or local clubs would like to check this out have a look at
