Lough Melvin gets its first salmon of the season


Monday 2nd to Sunday 8th March 2020

The stormy and wet conditions on Melvin continued for the most part with Saturday being a very rough day that no sane person would go out in.

Wednesday & Thursday did offer up 2 lovely ‘spring like’ days however and the 1st salmon of the season was recorded on the lough on Thursday.

This was a fine 11lb plus salmon caught by Noel Johnston at around 12 noon trolling at Garrison.

A further salmon was lost at 3pm by John Flanagan in Flanagan’s Bay when a swivel broke during the fight.
