Lindsey Clarke reports from LOUGH MELVIN – Monday 18th  to Sunday 24th July 2016.

Lough Melvin received very variable conditions for the week with 2 days that saw the temperature rise to 28°C! Salmon angling effort was fairly light as is usual at this stage of the season but those rods that tried for salmon reported that the fish were very dour (as was the cast on the Drowes river). To date I have only heard of 1 salmon caught. This was a fine 10lb salmon caught by John Ford on a small Mepps spinner in Farrell’s Bay. John also hooked and lost another salmon when the swivel above the spinner broke!
