Declan Gibbons IFI reports from Lough Corrib:

Angling activity on Lough Corrib the week gone by was somewhat quieter with less anglers about and changeable weather conditions and sparse hatches thus culminating in a quiet spell. The little fishing that was had was on caenis and sedges.

Larry McCarthy from Corrib View Lodge, Glencorrib www.corribangling.com reports a slow-down in caenis hatches but some sport was still available early mornings over the last week. Tony Ling, Mark Thomas and Tim Gawthorn from England all enjoyed early morning success catching 18 trout over 3 days with all fish returned. Larry himself took advantage of two free mornings and caught 11 fish up to three pounds on Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully with some settled weather Larry is hoping to see action to sedges or possibly the start of Corrib’s smaller second hatch of mayfly.
