A tough week on Lough Sheelin with high winds blowing form the south and south west. Although plenty of May Fly are still hatching along with a good showing of sedges, very few fish are actively feeding on the surface, rising only once to the odd fly. Day time temperatures have not helped either, reaching only the low to mid teen’s. The unsettled weather is due to continue well into next week. The lake itself is very coloured from Sally Island to Curadonna Point which is located on the eastern shores of Lough Sheelin. The best area’s to fish is the south western end of the lough from the Carrick reeds to Sporting rock as the water is less coloured. A small window of opportunity did however present itself for both Greg and I with some cracking trout to 4lb along the sheltered shores of sheelin.
