Fly fishing has been tough on Lough Conn so far this season with cooler conditions hampering any decent movement of fish towards the surface. Despite this a few anglers did have success. Ivor Trimble fishing out of Cloonamoyne Fishery had 1 trout of 13 inches to a sooty olive during the week. Gerry Murphy of Murphy Boat Hire reports 1 angler released 2 trout during the week. Peter Roche fished the south eastern area of Lough Conn on Friday 14th and released 4 trout, the biggest being 13 inches.

Simon Leonard released 2 trout while trolling on Lough Conn.

Keith Sommers, Sligo, was out trolling on Lough Conn and released a 6.5lbs. salmon and 3 trout averaging 1.5lbs all released.
