Mick Flanagan reports on the trout fishing on Lough Owel…

Earlier last week we did a few hours trolling on Owel, and had some success on small rubber lures, trout and perch colors working best. It was a brutal cold day and it pelted down snow for about forty minutes.

I met L.O.T.P.A. officers Stan and Chris McKeon launching their boat for the coming season, and no more that my self that’s not Snow on their heads. I like to call them highlights, and they say when you go Gray you never go bald. Now you learn something every day. Stan told me the Ace Cup trout fly fishing competition date has being changed from April 16th, and will be fished on April 23rd. This we will feature in the coming weeks.

Lough Owel produced some super brown trout during the week, and our pal Alan Thomas from Carrickfergus is pictured with a trout just short of 4lbs. Local angler Johnny Corcoran was also having a ball of a time on Owel, and had quite a few nice trout on the troll.
