On Wednesday last Danny Joy had a fish of 12lbs and on Thursday Colm Heffernan has a fish of 11lbs, both were caught spinning. There was also a good fish of 14lbs caught at Johnson’s fishery last weekend by a visiting angler, the same angler also lost a good fish on the same day. There were several other fish landed ranging from 5.5lbs to 9lbs.

Seatrout have been slow to make an appearance this year, however there have been a few reports of seatrout to 3lbs caught spinning at Heffernan’s fishery.

The river is currently at 1.4m after rising again slightly from the rain made last Friday, however it is once again dropping fast and with the forecast looking settled and dry the coming week looks promising.
