Weekly update

High water on the Drowes but another springer landed

February 13th, 2018 | by

12/02: Water levels remained very high all week once again. The river was very high on Monday reading 0.83 metres on the gauge and the river rose again over the week and by Sunday the gauge was reading 0.92 metres.

With all the high water levels, the fishery was fairly quiet with few rods fishing due in great part to the horrible weather conditions no doubt. On Monday however, Joe Broderick caught the second salmon of the season. This was an 8lb salmon caught on a Rapala from Lennox’s Pool.

At present, weather conditions remain foul with high precipitation of the white types. We pray for a spot of dry or frosty weather to bring down water levels.
