Beltra seeing an increase in sport

The high water earlier this week has allowed a run of both salmon and sea trout to come up the Newport River and into Lough Beltra. I have not been out yet but you can follow reports on the Genisland Coop FB page:

At this time of year smaller flies will work better, so salmon patterns tied on size 8 or 10 trout hooks will do the business for you.
