ANGLING

SALMON
Lakes of Killarney: Very little activity, due to low water conditions.
Laune Salmon Anglers: The water level remained unmoved by recent rain and is still stubbornly at 6” on the gauge at Johnstons. A foot or two of a rise would bring a big improvement in the fishing. A few fish were reported last week but very scarce.
Stewart Stephens continued to meet fish with his trusty Red Francis at Johnston’s whirlpool and yesterday Danny Joy landed a nice fresh 6lb fish at Heffernans on the worm.
River Lee; Drought conditions continue to mean no anglers out fishing, except near the tidal areas with reports of very occasional fish being caught.
River Bandon: Low water again last week and forecasted rain never materialised. There are good numbers of salmon in the tidal stretch, waiting for water.
River Ilen: During the past three weeks eight salmon were landed, best 7lbs landed by a local angler on a flying C.
River Fane: Some good fishing reported last week with salmon to 15lbs landed.
Blackwater Lodge: Saw fortunes improve last week and a number of fish were taken on all methods.
River Bandon: Has remained very low all summer but adapting tactics to conditions has seen the odd — very odd — salmon landed including a lovely 17lbs fish. Sea trout fishing is going well but a flood is badly needed.
Lough Currane: There was some reasonable fishing in the last seven days. There was a good bit of rain on the lake and it rose five inches early last week.
Owenemore Fishery: Up the road, was out of order, due to floods at the start of last week but prior to that was fishing well.
TROUT
Kells Blackwater: Fished very well last week with anglers landing up to two dozen trout in a session. Both nymphs and dry fly were fishing equally well.
Lough Melvin: 266 anglers fished the open trout angling competition, which was won by Jimmy Cahill and John Moroney with eight fish.
SEA
Red Bay: Specimen pollack, good cod and rays made up the catches of anglers fishing last week.
Shannon Estuary: Charter fishing is also going well with a good mix of species including a first for MV Clare Dragoon – a stone bass caught during a shark trip.
Valentia Island: Charter fishing anglers also enjoyed good sport with a good mix of species and some good conger landed.
Waterville: Some good bass are being caught by shore anglers.
Courtmacsherry: Reports from charter boat and small boat anglers are all positive.
Timoleague: Shore anglers at are enjoying good bass fishing on rag-worm.
Cork Harbour: Bass fishing is going well though the wind last week curtailed the sport for small boat anglers.
