The Burrishoole Fishery opened on the 17th of June with good numbers of fish showing. Despite excellent conditions, angling effort has been low so far. However, local anglers Joe Cooney and Padraic Farrell had a grilse each during opening week. Joe’s grilse was a wild fish and was carefully released.
