Erriff Fishery

May 31st, 2012 | by

Connemara was already fairly dry prior to the heatwave, but water levels are extremely low now, so salmon runs are delayed as fish cannot move upstream in the low water.

The Erriff Fishery produced one fish over the last week , the fish was caught on the 23rd by Jamie Ryan, Wexford, and was taken on a small Cascade on Beat 8

There is very little angling pressure on the Erriff at the moment, but water levels are extremely low and rainfall is needed to get fish moving.

A casting and flyfishing course for ladies will take place from Thursday the 5th to Sunday the 8th of July, led by qualified casting instructor mark Corps. All accommodation and meals are included, as well as tuition in all aspects of flyfishing and salmon fishing, and plenty of time on the river to practise the skills acquired. The cost for 3 nights B&B, lunch and dinner, and fishing tuition is €500 per participant. Partners can stay for €300, and may fish the river on the other beats for free. Contact Aasleagh Lodge for information and booking.

To book fishing on the Erriff or accommodation in Aasleagh Lodge, contact fishery manager Jim Stafford on 095 42252, or visit www.aasleaghlodge.ie for details. The lodge and fishery also have a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/AasleaghLodge
