Upper Mourne Fishing Update,June

Jul 6, 2017 | River Reports

11703052_703739959730656_4404344813783556379_nOn the Upper Mourne there were a total of 15 fish landed in the month of June with several more lost.  Three of the largest in size were between 11-14lbs.  

A very good number of fish have been showing in most pools during the month.  Water levels remained low for most of the month except for the second weekend when levels were very high due to heavy rainfall the previous couple of days.  

15 fish were caught between Friday 30th and Sunday 2nd July, one lucky angler landed 4 to his rod on Saturday.  The two largest fish were around 11lbs to J. Irvine in Doaks using a Bann Special, and J Hamilton Stubber in the Snaa using a Park Shrimp conehead.  Fish size ranged from small grilse 2.5lbs through to 11lbs.  

Early this week has seen little fishing due to rain and coloured water.  When the Mourne clears good catches should be expected. Derg water is running clear.
