Peter is back with a weekly round up from Piscari-Fly…

How’s the Fishing?

Over the weekend Mark ventured up to Lough Sheelin on the Cavan Border after some Early Season Wild Brown Trout, since the opening of its season on Friday the 1st of March. Conditions were cold, but warmer than recent days from snow fall. Though winds were quite low compared to recent days. Plan was to focus on some marks he had picked up and fish close to the shore lines & drop offs.
Mark started off with two fry pulling patterns on a Di3 sinking line fishing close to the bottom, along with Di5 sweep at times. Heading up the lake towards Crover House doing many drifts but found water very clouded here due to river inlet close by. Mark moved about other markers in the area fishing some nice water and drifts but no joy.

A change in the afternoon to head to the other end of the lake fishing back of Church island on the way and then down to Orange fields and some markers down that end of the lake. But unfortunately no joy. Due to very little to no wind made conditions difficult for fishing to get decent drifts in on shore lines. Compared to Saturday where reports of fish got on similar methods to that of Mark’s. Wind helping to turn up hog-lice and food source on the shoreline making the fish more active. However Mark still made the trip and reported still having enjoyed the day out to start off his Lake season & looking forward to spinning up again soon to this fantastic lake. Mark reported it being a very safe lake to boat on. But as always care to be taken on any lake.

Owen and Ricky got out pike fishing to the canals in Monasterevin. It was a cold one but a few nice fish caught, nice action mostly using soft plastics that are available here from piscari sea and game.

Here’s a great pattern for early season fry chasers on the loughs.
