The Rathcon fishery which is located west of Baltinglass, Co. Wicklow. Dermot Page reports:
The fishing has been pretty good recently after a poor summer and very average September. The daddy never really fished at all and water temperatures were still very high heading into October. The recent rain and drop in temperatures have livened up the fish over the past couple of weekends. The first of the winter league heats will be on 6th November.
Rathcon Lake is 8.5 acres and is stocked with top quality rainbow trout. The lake is fly fishing only and designed to allow maximum fishing so that 90% of the water can be covered. The average depth is 10ft with deep holes of up to 20ft in places. The fishery is open all year round and is home to a wide range of fly life, in particular buzzers, sedges, hawthorn and daddylonglegs, all providing excellent dry fly fishing, especially in the summer evenings.
