Lindsey Clarke reports  from LOUGH MELVIN – Monday 12th  to Sunday 18th Sept 2016.

Lough Melvin was quiet on the salmon angling front with few rods targeting the same but continued to fish well for trout again this week. Mainly Sonaghan over the deep water drifts. On Sunday the O’Doherty Cup competition was held and fished out of Garrison. The attendance was down somewhat due to its cancellation last Sunday but the day went well with most boats recording decent catches. The winners were Irvan Marchall and Gordon Law. In 2nd place were local father and son team, Sean and Darren Maguire. In third place were Jackie Mahon and Mark Devan. The heaviest fish award went to Gene Harron. All funds raised are given to a charity yet to be decided.
