Angling at Ballin Lough remained
steady over the week which is not surprising as it is the only game
fishery in the region available at this time of year. Twenty three rods
on the lough for the week accounted for 58 rainbow trout with
48 of those being released. Ronan Gibbons, Galway, had seven trout,
the best at 5lbs while Dave Tucker had three fish, two released with
his best at 3lbs. Frank Rigney and party, Galway, fishing ten rods had
a total of 18 trout, all of which were released with the best of these
The Black Pennel and Butcher
have been taking fish but the best fly for the lough still appears
to be the Bibio which has been accounting for the majority of fish caught.
Ballin Lough remains open until
the 31st October.
