Sweethope fishery weekly report 5th September 2016

Conditions have been slowly turning more Autumnal lately but warm water and winds have caused fish to be deep. When on the surface they have mainly feeding on very small insects which are quite hard to imitate but on occasion good sport has been had on Daddies and hoppers.

Again those fishing the  lower Lough have been more successful than those fishing the Great Lough and fishing from a boat has been more successful than from the bank.

Number of fish returned: 50

Number of visiting anglers: 40

Successful fly patterns: Daddy, black gnat, Invicta, diawl bach, hopper, shipman’s buzzer, klinkhammer, buzzer, Dawson’s Olive, lures.
