BAC – Dean McStraw with a fantastic Rainbow caught at the Corbet Lough on 25 July 2020

The reports indicate that following the recent rain and a couple of good spates down the River that the River is fishing very well at the moment. Wilson Clinghan has been catching great wild brownies up to about 2lbs. Eugene Curran has also caught a couple of salmon. The Club encourages anglers to fish responsibly on the River and practise catch and release to protect the River’s wild indigenous trout and the salmon runs. On Saturday 1 August the Club’s competition anglers held their annual outing to Spelga Dam. Eugene Curran won the Linda Clinghan Shield with Donald McClearn and Joe Curran in 2nd and 3rd place respectively. In the Juvenile category Sam Curran won the Wilson Clinghan Cup. The Club’s next competition is at the Corbet Lough on Saturday 15 August when the Adult anglers will be fishing for the Jordan Cup and the Juvenile anglers will be fishing for the Corbet Cup. On the same day and also at the Corbet Lough the Club’s Junior anglers will be fishing for the Dr Cocks Shield.
