Frank Maunsell from the Owenmore Fishery reports that they had an early run of sea trout last week but the water level was too high over the weekend…

12 April: We have a good flood in the river at the moment. It will be Monday before it is fishable. We have had a run of Seatrout over the last two weeks but the real run of Seatrout normally starts in the last two weeks of April. Some of the fish in this run can be heavier than what you would get later on in the Season.

Last Years early run was one of the best we have had in the past twenty years so lets hope this continues for 2015.
