brown trout, blackwater clare

I have been fishing in my local blackwater stream the past few months, it is very small and there isn't much of a flow at all withthe little rain we've had, I have been catching plenty of small brown trout, there nothing edible size in the stream, i use a size 10/12 hook and a worm, I was wondering are there any other methods of fishing, it is extremely overgrown and wud be difficult to fly fish in, any tips or help will be excellent, thanks

Coming over from America

I plan on coming over to visit my cousin in Leitrim (near Glenfarne) in mid July.  I have fished the Drumcliff for sea trout and the Drowes for salmon in the past.  Does anyone have any other good options in the Northwest?

Thanks,

Jim
