RIVER DROWES – Monday 29th July  to Sunday 4th August 2019.


There were good water levels on the Drowes once again last week. The gauge read 0.53m on Monday. The river fell slowly and by Sunday afternoon the gauge was reading 0.44m. Decent rain on Sunday meant that the river began to start rising again in the evening. The fishery was a little quieter as is normal at this stage of the season. There were around 20 grilse caught for the week with many of these being fresh fish.


LOUGH MELVIN – Monday 29th July  to Sunday 4th August 2019.

Melvin was quiet for the most part. There was little salmon angling effort. The trout fishing was variable with some rods reporting no fish for a days fishing and others having some god sport with Sonaghan. The Roosky Shore drifts seem to have provided the best of the fishing.
