Kevin O’Boyle reports from Lough Conn…
Bright sunshine all week on the lake put some anglers off while the few that did wet a line had some good results. There was a notable absence of fly life, but some early hatches of mayfly were seen in Tolan’s Bay and Cloghans Bay. Most trout were caught on sinking lines.
Peter Roche had 7 trout to the boat all released, between 1.5 lbs. and 2 lbs. mostly to sedge patterns in Cloghans Bay and old Schoolhouse Bay. Gary Binley had 5 trout, best of which weighed 2 lbs.
Thirty-one trout were reported overall with most fish returned alive. The best trout reported caught was from Tolan’s Bay, North Conn from local angler Pawel Jasnikowski for 2.2 lbs. with 2 more trout returned alive. Padraig Traynor had 3 to the boat, the best of which weighed 1.5 lbs., all taken on dabblers.
