Anglers still struggle on Loughs Conn & Cullin

Angling Report week ending 28/05/2023  

Fishing on the lakes didn’t improve compared to the week before last. Very little fly life was being recorded and fishing was a tough nut to crack, to say the least. There were no big hatches of Mayflies and if trout could be tempted they were mostly below the size limit.

Peter Roche ventured out on Monday, fishing Rinmore Point and Brackwansha. He recorded a localised hatch at Rinmore Point in the morning and caught a few small trout on a Cock Robin Dabbler.

On Sunday, Foxford Angling Club competed for the President’s Cup.  Billy Murphy won the competition and joint second place went to Dominic McGowan and Bryan Kennedy. Pete Ramsden was third.  Thirteen anglers returned 7 trout over 13 inches. Conditions were tough with a north wind and bright sunshine.
