Adrian Duffy, IFI Limerick, reports from the River Shannon…

I was spoke recently with Piotr, a member  of the Ballinasloe District  Anglers, in the Mid- Shannon region. He and his friends are having excellent pike fishing in the Shannonbridge area this month.

Piotr is getting lots of pike including this fine fish on dead bait.

Water levels are dropping on the River Shannon following weeks of high water, and thankfully the recent rain storms have not seen the levels rise too much again. This should  improve  angling  even  further as we are expecting  a busy Easter weekend.
