Westport angler, Brian Hope, caught & released the first salmon of the season on Carrowmore Lake! Brian’s fish was caught on Saturday 30th March and took a Green Peter Variant and weight approx. 7 lbs. Brian and his boat partner also hooked and lost another two fish. Well done to Brian who is a regular on the lake.
