The first salmon of the season was reported from Carrowmore Lake! Below is a report from Bangor Erris Angling Club…
We are sad to have to report the first fish of 2021 was caught on Carrowmore Lake by a resident Dublin man – will we ever beat the dubs?
Mervin Corway who originally comes from Dublin but now lives locally caught the first Salmon on the fly on Monday 12th April on Carrowmore Lake in the wilds of Mayo. The fish was a cracking and pure fresh 9lbs. Mayo Atlantic Salmon caught on one of Mervin’s own tied flies. Mervin had no sooner landed the first fish and he was into a second fish of approx 7lbs. which was landed and carefully released.
We are thrilled that Mervin caught the first fish this year as he has worked hard for this title. Mervin also caught two more spring salmon the following day which is a fantastic start to his angling this year.
Now that the 5km area has been extended to inter-county travel we expect a couple of more anglers to fish the lake in the coming days and as temperatures rise we expect plenty of action in the coming days.
