I didn't go to the west for the opening of the season, the weather prior to the 15th of February was not condusive to good fishing. Therefore my first day out will be tommorrow, March 1st, now that the season has opened locally. I am starting of by fishing Lough Lene near Collinstown in Westmeath. This beautiful little lough is a stocked fishery with both brown and rainbow trout in it and is a pleasant lake to fish and with it being small enough to motor all around it in one day it is easy to find feeding fish somewhere.
It is always nice to start off with a successful days fishing.
