Sweethope Fishery Weekly Report, week ending 22/07/18

More of the same conditions but with a bit of wind of late to stir the water up and possibly cool it down.

Stwart Bettinson, staying at one of the holiday cottages had a great day on the Great Lough on Wednesday, bringing 6 trout to the boat, fishing dries. Thursday in similar conditions he blanked but the water temperature had increased by 2-3 degrees. Enough to put the fish off feeding and drive them down into deeper water!

On Saturday we hosted the British Float Tube Association and 8 anglers who took 12 fish and returned 13 safely to the lake.


Number of fish taken: 15

Number of fish returned: 34

Number of visiting anglers: 40

Rod average: 1.0

Successful fly patterns: Hare’s ear, black & brown, black foam spider, bibio, black muddler,cat’s whisker, assorted dries.
