Carrowmore Lake – Despite a lot of Bright weather the fishing remains good on the lake

Great Fishing Despite Difficult Angling Conditions

Carrowmore Lake has continued to yield some great Spring Salmon on the Fly despite a lot of bright weather over the past week. There has been an average o7 boats out on the lake every day and generally each boat is landing at least two fish if not more. The Best of the fishing has generally been in the evenings because of very bright days with cloudless skies on some occasions.

There have been quite a few fish caught since the last update but here are some of the recent lucky anglers below with a higher percentage releasing fish rather than keeping them which is great to see.

Merv Corway has caught a few more fish with one up to 13lb – all released

John Cosgrove has had a few fish up to 9lbs at time of writing

Cristy Murphy and Ben Baines both had fish on their day on the lake recently.

Vincent Rigney Westport has had a few Springers also most of which have been released

Declan Foley had his first fish of the year which was also released.

Kevin Byrne Castlebar had 2 fish one released

Vincent McHugh had one fish

Barry Doocey had a fish

Rocky Moran Castlebar had a fish

At the time of writing on Monday 26th April the weather is still very bright but cloudier and cooler conditions are promised this week so angling is expected to remain consistent if not better.
