Reporting from Mount Dalton is angling journalist and guide Mick Flanagan…
This beautiful brown trout fishery near Rathconrath just outside Mullingar opened on May 1st. Last week Kells anglers Sean Condren and Benny Campbell had a cracking evening boating 6-7 hard fighting trout, and loosing as many fish on both wet and dry flies.
The lake is fly only and there are two boats for hire on Mount Dalton, and no engines are allowed. So not only do you enjoy a days fishing, you also get a lot of exercise rowing the boat.
I have got a lot of enquiries about fishing on Mount Dalton and you have to book a boat in advance of traveling to fish the lake. The contact number is 044-9355241, and early morning is best time to ring, or late evening.
