Ken Whelan, of, was on to let us know that Lough Lene is producing some exceptional rainbow trout fishing at the moment.

As the season moves on, the trout start feeding on perch fry. This summer, though not great weather-wise, is not too bad fishing-wise, and the the trout are following the patterns expected of them.

The abundance of perch fry has seen many of the better overwintered fish feeding hard. These high quality, fin perfect rainbows give a great account of themselve,s especially when they make weights like 7lb and more.
