Anglers reported plenty of olive with the occasional mayfly throughout the lake. Larry McCarthy of Corrib Angling Services reporting good fishing on the lower lake in spite of the difficult conditions, as the last few days were bright and windy. Malcolm Patrick, England fished from Corrib Angling Services and landed 3 good fish, including one of 4.5lbs.
