Heatwave puts dampener on fishing on Loughs Conn & Cullin

An angler about to land a trout on Lough Conn

Kevin O’Boyle reports on the week’s angling on Loughs Conn & Cullin:

Because of the calm sunny, dry weather, not many anglers ventured out on the lakes.

Two anglers reported 2 small grilse trolling copper and silver spoons.  A party of 3 anglers fishing out of Gortnorabbey Harbour had some small trout to the boat and 1 to the measure.  All fish came to green Mayfly patterns, and all were released.

Two groups of anglers fished out of Cloonamoyne Fishery, Enniscoe and met some trout rising along Woodford Shallows and Castle Island. They boated approximately 10 trout to each boat with only 2 or 3 trout to the measure. All fish were released.

Two anglers from Foxford trolling for salmon by Kents Pool and the River Deel, caught a 22 lbs pike, some perch and 1 trout for 1 .5 lbs on a Tasmanian Devil.  All fish were released.
