Markus Müller, Angling Information Manager with IFI Ballina office reports from Carrowmore Lake:

Fishing on Carrowmore Lake was hampered by high winds until mid-week. After the lake had settled, a total of nine salmon were caught, four of which were released. Most of the fish weighed between 4 lbs. and 6 lbs. However, a magnificent 12.75 lbs. salmon was caught by Vincent Rigney from Westport on a small Black Dabbler. Other successful flies included Green Peter and various Muddler Head type flies.

Please note that Carrowmore Lake is a Brown Tag Fishery this year! For fishing on Carrowmore Lake contact Seamus Henry on +353 (0)97 83487 or visit
