Squally conditions on Lough Conn

Kevin O’Boyle reports from Lough Conn & Lough Cullin…

Due to the 5km Covid-19 travel restrictions only a small number of anglers are currently fishing. Those who ventured out did enjoy some good sport. Duck fly hatches were patchy on both lakes mainly because of the cold weather. The best reported hatches occurred in Cloghans Bay on Lough Conn and most of the fish reported were caught in this area of the lake.

Brendan Murphy had 2 keepers, all returned alive to the water. Peter Roach had some good fishing over a few days on the Brackwansha shoreline, mostly on the Bibio.  All fish were released. Popular flies included Black Dabblers, Bibio, Watson’s Fancy & Kate McLaren.
