[ March 2009 ]
Lough Beltra has seen a productive start to the angling season with some good salmon caught and released and a number of other fish lost. On the 20th of March, the first day of the season, Fergus Bain caught a fine 10 lbs. spring fish, while on the 21st Dr Noel Cahill, from Dublin, took the first salmon of the season on the second day of the season with a fresh 81/2 lbs fish. Local man, Eamon Kennedy took a fresh salmon on Lough Beltra. Mr.Feinberg from the U.S.A hooked and prematurely released a fresh salmon on the river. Mr.G. Booty from England, a regular visitor released a good fresh fish at the net. Other rods had lots of rises, suggesting there are good numbers of salmon in the system and currently very likely fished. Shrimp fly patterns were the most popular flies over the period.
Finally on the last day of the month Mr. G. Booty caught & released a further two fresh fish on the lake.
