Huge double figure trout landed at Careysville


There have been a few reports of some nice trout coming off the River Blackwater recently, but Patrick Devennie, fishery manager at Carysville House reports that a huge fish was landed on their water a couple of weeks ago. Elaine Caffrey was fishing for salmon when she got a good thump on the end of her line. And while a salmon would have been impressive, the fish turned out to be an even more impressive brown trout. All present were eager to get the fish back in the water as soon as possible so no measurements were taken and the fish was released after a quick photo, but the fish was estimated to be between 10lb and 12lb, a cracking fish by any standard.
