The bright conditions and very low water levels didn’t make for easy fishing on Carrowmore Lake. However, anglers caught a total of 14 fish for the week. Among the successful anglers were Glen Woods, Martin McDonnell and nine year old Leo Reuland from Belmullet who caught his first ever salmon. Ewan McGregor, Scotland, had a total of three all of which were released, while local angler, John Cosgrove, had the best of the week with 11.5lbs. Most successful flies included Green Peter, Dabbler and Zulu patterns.
