There was an improvement in the angling on Lough Melvin this week. The start of the week was fairly wet and the lough rose over the first 3 days of the week.

There were few rods trout fishing but a few boats reported good fishing for the same on wet fly. On Saturday, the Rossinver Club held their annual Angling Festival. The day was somewhat miserable with persistent rain for the greater part of the day. A good was had by all however and the fishing was pretty good with 2 salmon recorded and decent trout fishing. Gerry O’Brien was awarded the Aidan O’Dare cup for the best catch of trout with 5 fish caught and Phillip Rooney was awarded the Pat Love Cup with 5 trout caught also.
