Water levels were low and fishing conditions were good on the Killarney Lakes. The good weather brought out a lot of anglers, with different focuses (coarse, trout and salmon).
There were three salmon caught on the lakes by locals trolling. The fish were reported to weigh between 6 and 10lbs. Trout being caught on the fly on Lough Leane and from shore.
Lough Leane, Muckross Lake and the Upper Lake, Killarney, Co. Kerry are part of the River Laune catchment. Fishing is free on these lakes. A reasonable number of salmon are taken mainly on the troll with some big spring salmon annually accounted for.
