Local anglers who live within 5km enjoyed excellent spent gnat fishing on Lough Arrow during the week.
While good numbers of mayflies are still hatching during the early part of the day late afternoon and evening hours produced the best results. Fine fish up to the four pound mark have been reported with the average weight around 1.5 lbs.
Among the successful anglers was Roger Maxwell who had several trout on the dry up to 2.5 lbs. Lady angler, Claire Conlon, did particularly well catching her first ever trout (3.3 lbs.) on the dap.
Despite some changeable weather towards the weekend, anglers are hopeful that the good spent gnat fishing will continue for the next few days.
