Joe Flanelly from Keel River Lodge reports that Lough Carra is fishing very well with good action being enjoyed by anglers, and no blank days reported, despite a poor mayfly hatch. The most successful patterns are Claret Bumble, Golden Olive Bumble, Green Peter, Silver Daddy, Sooty Olive and Claret and Mallard.
Michael Maloney from Ennis Co. Clare had 4 good trout for one day. Dr. Killian Hurst from Ballinasloe Co. Galway who fished with his father Dermot also had 4 fish. The best fsh was a nice one of 2.5lbs and took a Golden Olive Bumble. A visiting angler from Scotland, Marcus Thomson, had a great day, landing 6 trout to 2lbs. 5 of the fish took a Claret Bumble. All fish were returned to the water.
