ANGLING

SALMON

Drowes:

Good water suited the few anglers who were out and a few grilse were taken. One angler had 4 on spinner, 3 released.

Ballisodare:

Fluctuating water levels saw only 15 salmon last week.

Moy System:

Had a reported catch of just 113 salmon for the week, as high water levels impacted on the fishing. Anglers targeting sea trout on the estuary fared a little better.

Erriff:

Despite a good show of fish, only four were caught last week – all grilse of about 4lb.

Lough Inagh:

Starting to improve for sea trout with a fair number of fresh fish in the system.

Kerry Owenmore:

Had some great sea trout fishing particularly on White Lake.

Laune:

Despite an upbeat mood improved catches did not materialise.

Lough Currane:

There were a few very quiet days last week and in total eight salmon and about a dozen sea trout reported.

West Cork:

Some of the rivers have fished well with rain suiting spate systems. The Ilen did best with almost 20 fish a week recently. Low water has seen angling effort tail off on the Bandon but a few fish were taken on shrimp in lower sections.

Munster Blackwater:

Fishing has been challenging too. The Blackwater Lodge beats are averaging a salmon a day, but an improvement is expected following the latest flood there.

Boyne:

Some beautiful fresh salmon to 10lbs reported. French anglers doing particularly well and one pair of tourists had six fish over three days.

TROUT

Lough Mask:

There was some great fishing for trout anglers, particularly at the weekend over the deeps.

Lough Sheelin:

Some good trout to 4 lbs reported.

Lough Melvin:

Also reported some good trout fishing with fish to over 6lbs on dry fly.

SEA

Donegal:

There were some big fish landed by kayak anglers and last weekend a 150lb skate was caught at the Irish Kayak Club meet.

Killala Bay:

Moving south to charter boat anglers had good mixed fishing with pollack, spurdogs, ling, cod and more species landed.

Galway Bay:

Is continuing to produce good blue shark when conditions suit.

West Clare coast:

The heavy swells have put a stop to much of the rock fishing but when conditions are suitable there are some good wrasse to be caught and the triggerfish are expected soon also. Charter fishing off the Clare coast and in the Shannon Estuary is seeing a good mix of white fish and blue sharks.

West Cork:

Charter boats operating are reporting everything from dabs to blue shark, including bass at Courtmacsherry.

Kinsale:

Mike Dennehy was more than a few miles outside Kinsale in pursuit of Albacore tuna earlier last week. He made the most of the weather window open to him and managed a fine fish of 63lbs.

Cobh:

Visiting anglers had their trip saved by their guide who got them over some estuary bass after poor weather prevented them getting out to Cork Harbour.
