LOUGH MELVIN – Monday 8th to Sunday 14th September 2014.

Lough Melvin remained very low with no rainfall to freshen things up. Trout fishing was variable with some rods reporting fair fishing for Sonaghan and Gillaroo and other rods reporting the fishing being tough in light winds and very bright weather. Sunday gave nice conditions being overcast with a nice breeze. Luckily, this was the day that the Seamus O’Doherty Memorial Cup Pairs Competition was held out of Garrison. There was a good turn out on the day with 47 boats fishing. The competition was won by Dermot Brewster & Barry Maguire with 6 fish. In second place were father & son team, Sean & Darren Maguire with 5 fish and in third place were Greg White & Gary Stewart with 5 fish.
