Oughterard Accommodation

We saw salmon spawning the other day. its hard to photograph but there are two fish in the photo, one sideways digging the gravel the other patiently waiting just above the first fish!

It’s time to start planning the year ahead! So why not put a few days aside for trout fishing in April its a particularly good time of the year!!

2010 Was a mixed year with poor fishing conditions during the peak times and better conditions when everyone was on holidays! But already we are looking towards next season. Bookings are coming in steadily. We are maintaining just 11 boats now – as we like to keep our boats maintained to a very high standard – 14 was too many!!

Brian Cowan has ensured that no-one can take a holiday this Christmas! So much for the grand ideas and all the efforts and hard work put in over the year things will just have to wait until the economy picks up.

We are all looking forward to Christmas in Oughterard with lots of family, timber fires and winter walks.

There was a great run of salmon into the Corrib this year so we expect some great spawning – another thing to look out for over Christmas.
