The River Drowes had its first salmon of the season on Friday. The honours went to local angler Joe Broderick from Bundoran. Joe caught his fish, a lovely 10lb salmon fresh off the tide, just after midday from the Old Sea Pool on a black Flying C. Water temperature was 6°C and the level was at 0.7m on the gauge.
It has been a very quiet few weeks on the Drowes. With the lockdown there’s not many fishing or taking advantage of the stove on Drowes Fishery. Fishery owner Shane Gallagher reminds all anglers that current 5km travel restrictions remain in place until March 5th, but he looks forward to seeing more anglers on the fishery then.

The Drowes Fishery is one of Ireland’s premier spring salmon and grilse fisheries. The river is some 5 miles in length, with over 70 named pools, flowing from Lough Melvin at Lareen Bay and entering the sea at Tullaghan, just outside Bundoran. The Drowes has a wide variety of water suitable for all fishing methods, including several miles of good fly water and deeper slower moving pools suitable for spinning and bait fishing.
