Frank Maunsell from the Owenmore Fishery reports:

22 August: We have had plenty of rain for the past week or so. At times the river was too high but when the conditions were right the fish were caught. We had 9 grilse over the week and seatrout up to 3 lbs. Most of the fish caught still had lice on them.

The lakes are full of fish but with the wind conditions this year we have had very few opportunities to get out. One day we got out for an hour and a half and we had 8 fish. Another day they were able to get out for 4 hours and they had almost 20 fish.

A lot of these were juniors but there were some big fish met as well. A man went out with a cast of  4lb breaking strain and the second fish he met went away with his three flies.

We were supposed to be able to fish today but it is much too windy so I am hoping the two lads will get out tomorrow.
