Maura Hughes reports on the coarse fishing around Belturbet…


A good tench that weighed in at over 6lb

It’s been a mixed week with a lot of heavy rain early in the week bringing the levels up and fishing conditions hard. But towards the middle of the week some nice perch, roach, tench & bream were caught and released.

Another tench that went over 6lb

One of the best catches we had reported to us was of 30 tench and a few bream caught in two days by two of the anglers staying with us. Some specimen tench were caught too – top weight 6 lb 6 ounces.

There were a few good bream in the catches too
