Despite changing weather conditions, anglers caught 27 salmon (11 released) over the past two weeks on Carrowmore Lake. Amongst the successful anglers were members of the Dargle Anglers who had an outing on Carrowmore during the week. The majority of the fish were fresh-run grilse between 3 and 6 lbs.

Along with the grilse there are very good numbers of sea trout entering the system providing extremely enjoyable fishing. Most of the sea trout are around ¾ lbs. weight with the odd bigger fish amongst them. However, some anglers also reported fine sea trout between 2 and 3.5 lbs. Most successful flies included Black Dabbler, Green Peter and small size Cascade patterns fished on the point.
