Knockaderry re opens with an explosion of large rainbows and browns

October 25th, 2016 | by

David Tantrum PRO of Waterford City and County Trout Angling Association is delighted to tell us that this Friday will see the re-opening of Knockaderry to day ticket holders .  It will be stocked with one kilo rainbows for winter fishing.  This should relieve the pressure on Carrigavantry, which is hosting competitions and corporate days this weekend and through November.

jason-oriordan-knockaderry-cup-in-full-swingSince Knockaderry has not been fished since July expect some large rainbows and browns that have been feeding on an explosion in the stickle back population.  Shoals of them can be seen in the margins and on the face of the dam.  Weather permitting, there should be excellent back-end fishing.   All you have to do is catch them!



Carrigavantry – This 30 acre reservoir is hidden in the hills behind Tramore. The lake can be fished from the dam and road and the rest of the lake shore needs waders. The deepest part is the island at 10 feet.Prolific hatches of lake olives and damsels occur. Stocking is with both browns and rainbows. You could loose your catch here to a 20lb Pike!

Knockaderry – The deepest part of the lake is 24 feet at the dam tower, the average depth is 6ft and this results in good weed growth. Trout fatten fast in this fertile water on caddis, snails and stickle backs, while lake olives,buzzers sedges and damsels bring on prolific rises. This 80 acre reservoir is a traditional top of the water drift fishery.

New members are welcome and an active programme of fly tuition is pursued to encourage beginners and get our youth out into the countryside.
