Angling Guide and journalist Mick Flanagan reports on the fishing on Lough Owel:

Gerry Peppard on Owel
Gerry Peppard on Owel

The Owel trout are playing hard to get during day light hours. I had a great chat with some serious Owel anglers, and they are getting a few good fish late in the evening. Mind you Gerry Peppart of Trim has no problem catching the Owel trout, and had some crackers last week on the troll. Gerry gave me a look at his magic lure, and I had something similar but only caught a few colorful perch on Owel. Gerry and his pal had a boat booked from Jack Doolin at Mullallys and really enjoys his few days on Owel.If you fancy a day on owel give jack a bell on 044-93-42085.Unfortunally we got a lot of reports of damage being done to boats, including oars being broken.
