Paddy Halpin from IFI Limerick reports from the River Felae

We had a big flood on Saturday so there were no anglers out. On Sunday it was still high; fishable  in a few places but no account of fish. Easter Monday’s conditions were perfect for spinning and a lot of anglers were out but only one fish was reported for the day. The lucky angler was Jer Mulvihill from Mountcoal, Listowel, who got the a fresh fish of 8lbs while spinning along the Wall at in the Killocrom/Finuge club waters.

Yesterday,  Wednesday 30 March,  local lad, young Oisin Prendiville got his first ever Salmon while spinning in the same waters. The fish weighed in at 6lbs. Well done Oisin.

The water level is still dropping and is just coming nice for the fly but the forecast is for more rain so the river will be up again for the weekend.

About 50% of the main River Feale and the Smearlagh River is controlled by 5 angling clubs. These clubs are some of the best angling waters and each club offers day tickets for visiting anglers. The rest of the Feale and its tributaries are effectively open waters, but it is recommended that local advise and direction be sought before accessing any stretches of the system. All club waters are signposted and some club stretches may vary annually. Find out more at: http://fishinginireland.info/salmon/shannon/feale.htm
