July 27th, 2017 | by

Eileen Carroll from Inland Fisheries Ireland’s office in Macroom gives us the angling report for the week ending Sunday, 23rd of July 2017:

A dozen salmon were reported caught on the River Bandon last week. These were mainly caught on shrimp as low water conditions continued.

On the Ilen River, 40 salmon were landed while the best was a 14lbs salmon caught by a club angler on a flying C.

Meanwhile, on the Coomhola River, six salmon were landed for the week and the best was 7lbs by a club angler on a worm.

The River Lee saw eight salmon for the week, mostly at the Kingsley Weir and all caught on shrimp by local anglers. The best salmon reported here was 6 ½ lbs.

Finally, at the River Lee ESB Fishery in Inniscarra, there were two fish landed for the week – one was a salmon weighting 6 1/2 lbs caught and released on shrimp by a local angler while the other was a peel of 2 ¾ lbs, also caught and released on shrimp by a local angler.
