Although the water was very cold due to recent snow water entering the river the fishing was great with Shane Dunne from Claremorris taking the honours with 4.5kilo of small roach all caught at 13 meters Shane had 140 roach while other anglers had between 2 and 4 kilo of roach each they were kept busy for the 4 hour match.


The river suck is fishing very well for this time of the year and with the new stretch at EMLAGH it’s proving to be a popular match stretch.
