Rock House

Fishing in May on the Rock House beat of the Owenduff was consistently good with a total of 25 fish caught, most fish weighing in at between 8lb and 12lb. The very wet weather provided ample water throughout the month and the runs of fish were plentiful.

John Fitzgerald and Frank Hughes started the month's catch with three salmon of 16lb, 10lb and 8lb respectively. Jean-Claude Daniauld and Antoine Metterand from France had a good angling trip catching fish of 6lb, 11lb, 12lb and 8lb. They both await eagerly a return trip to fish Rock House water in the center of Ballycroy, Nephin Beg national park, again.

Fishing came to a close at the end of May with Dermot Laydon from Sligo catching three salmon tipping the scales at 8lb, 5lb and 3lb, while Jane Hall on her first trip this season caught a lovely 6-pounder.
All in all, an exceptional month of May, in fact the best for some years, with good numbers of very healthy fish.
