Fresh salmon running Suir despite water levels

June 27th, 2018 | by

Anglers on the Suir in the Carrick and Glenview area are reporting catches of two and three Salmon per day over the past week with as many being hooked.  Fresh runs of fish have been spotted moving during the past week despite water levels being slightly up.

Noel Power had this picture taken on the morning of the 21st June by a lady walker on the tow path in Carrick who kindly stopped to take this snap of Noel and his catch. The Salmon was caught with a Ballinderry Blue Fly. Jean Loup Trautner a local Angling provider who has 3 fishing beats on the River Suir has reported that all 3 of his areas; Poulatrass, Gurteen and Newcastle are all fishing well.  He has regular French anglers coming to the River Suir to Fish and all that visited have been pleased with the fishing in the area. He can be contacted via email on jeanlouptrautner@gmail.com

Bio Security: As always, we would kindly like to remind all who use Ireland’s watercourses to please use appropriate biosecurity measures for themselves so to help prevent the spread of invasive species in and out of the water.

Water Safety: The Carrick staff would kindly like to remind all about the importance of using Life Jackets in and around water as they really do save lives. Adequate Flotation devices should always be worn and it especially sets a template regards water safety where younger Anglers are present.

 “Take only memories, leave only footprints”. The Carrick staff would like to ask all who are using the water courses in the area to be mindful of littering and to please use bins provided or take home their rubbish.

Sun Safety: As Ireland is currently enjoying one of the hottest weeks in decades we are advising Anglers and all who use the water courses in the SERBD to use adequate sun protection and cover up where possible. It is not advisable during these hot days to spend prolonged periods of time exposed to the sun, especially in or on water.
