A very cold and windy week has made fishing conditions difficult. We have consequently had a reduced number of visitors but all have been rewarded by some good sport. Even when the Great Lough has had waves and white horses it has been possible to find some shelter on the Little Lough. Best performance of the week was probably that of Billy Emery and John Metcalf who returned 24 rainbow trout to the Great Lough on Friday, fishing from a boat.
Number of fish taken:18
