The slow but steady return to angling has been welcomed by all especially those living within 5km of their local waters. Some anglers returned to the brown trout fishing on the River Boyne since the easing of restrictions and the fishing has not disappointed. Water levels have been good due to the relatively good and settled weather and there has been good fly activity on many stretches of the river around Navan.
Trout have been actively free-rising and fishing has been good during the day and into the late evening. John Baker and a few other local anglers have had a number of outings to the river recently and produced some nice wild brown trout on dry flies. According to reports there were lots of trout in the .75lb bracket with occasion fish to 1lb and the best trout weighing in at circa 1.5lbs. A fine river trout.
All fish were returned carefully to the river after a quick photo. We look forward to receiving further reports in they coming weeks and we will keep you posted as the news comes in.
