The salmon fishing season on Carrowmore Lake started with a bang this year! On Sunday 13th March, in perfect angling conditions, Vincent Rigney from Westport landed the first Salmon of the year on the lake weighing in at 11 lbs.
Two more salmon were caught on the day. The lucky anglers were John Campbell, also Westport, with a nine pounder and Tom Slevin from Offaly who landed an 8 lbs. fish. One day later, Pat Foley caught another salmon on Carrowmore.
