It’s nearly all pike fishing news this week. Some good fishing was reported from the midlands and Lough Corrib and there’s also a big competition coming up next month. Also in pike news is the new regulation which was signed on 25 October…

Inland Fisheries Ireland is reminding all salmon and sea trout anglers of the importance of returning their 2018 angling logbook and unused gill tags on time (by law angling logbook returns must be made by 19th October annually even if there is no catch recorded). These returns will provide vital information regarding the status and management of our wild Atlantic Salmon and Sea Trout stocks for 2019, which is International Year of the Salmon.
Anglers are asked to make the return via the business return envelope which was supplied at the time of license purchase. In the absence of the prepaid logbook return envelope, anglers can return their completed logbook and unused tags to the Inland Fisheries Ireland office address on their licence/logbook.
And now the weather…
Met Eireann tells us to expect a cold Bank Holiday weekend. There’s going to be some sunshine at times but it won’t bring up the temperatures much and you can also bank on overnight frosts and some icy patches.
Safe fishing to all and tight lines, especially here in Ireland.
