Kevin O’Boyle reports from Loughs Conn & Cullin…

Blustery and cold weather conditions combined resulted in a slack week on Loughs Conn and Cullin.  Saying that, the few anglers that did venture out reported some reasonable fishing. There are still some small hatches of Mayfly appearing in bays all over the lakes.  Best flies for the week included the Red Tag Green Peter, Mayfly patterns, Stimulators, Sedgehogs and Bumble patterns.

Paul Caslin, Ross and David Gray, Castlebar, had decent angling in South Conn last Saturday, with some good trout up to 2 lbs, all released on Bumble patterns.

Local Angler Peter Roche, Cloghans, had 7 trout to the boat, the best weighing 1.75 lbs all within 4 hours to a Red Tag Green Peter and a Stimulator. He was fishing Cloghans and the Brackwansha Shore, and all fish were released.

Oliver Dillon from Sligo had some good sport in Flannery’s Bay and along the Abbey Shore.  He reported 6 keepers to the net, the best weighing 2 lbs, all caught on Bumbles and all fish were released.

Pawel and 2 friends fished North Conn, along the islands outside Bog Bay and Woodford Island and had approximately 10 trout to the boat.  They also caught some Perch up to 3 lbs weight. All fish were caught on Bumbles and all fish were released.

Eric Traynor, Crossmolina & Sydney trolled North Conn with his daughters Ella and Ivy. Ella caught a small trout just over 1.25 lbs on a Mepps and Ivy caught caught a pike for 4 lbs also on a Mepps.
