[ April 2009 ]
Angling catches slowed somewhat on Lough Beltra over the week ending April 5 but this may be partly explained by the settled and bright weather. Alex Haywood boated a 7 lb fish, while John Belmore caught a 8 lb salmon and Aiden Byrne also landed a 8 lb springer.
Three good salmon were reported for the next week, two of which went to Lorne Vernon, Belgium, who had a very nice 10lb springer and English angler, David Cripps, who landed a good 8 lb fish, both of whom were fishing out of Newport House. Aiden Byrne, Castlebar also had a very good springer of10 lb fishing the Glenisland portion of the lake.
Lough Beltra enjoyed good catches for the week ending April 19, with a total of 9 salmon reported. The best fish, weighing 11 lb, was caught by Michael (Rocky) Moran, Castlebar, while Phil Beirne, Castlebar,Martin Hughes, Newport and Sean Dolan, Dublin, all recorded fish around the 9 lb mark. On the NewportHouse side of the lake, Richard Dowell, caught two salmon weighing 10 lb and 8 lb while Jonathan Murray also had two both of which weighed around the 7 lb mark.
