Low attendance and low levels on the Drowes but 8lb salmon caught
April 30th, 2012 | by Nancy Hearne
Monday 23rd: The river ran at very low levels once again this week. The rainfall continues to miss the northwest of the country with other areas complaining of big floods! There were a number of rods fishing over the week though the fishery was not particularly busy. The river continues to produce salmon however, despite the very low water and fairly low attendance. On Monday, Paul Molloy recorded a 6lb salmon caught on a tube fly from Briney’s and Paddy Doherty logged a 7½lb salmon caught on a Yellow Belly Devon Minnow from The Blackwater. On Tuesday, Emile Oliver registered an 8lb salmon caught on a fly from the Mill Pool and Colin Gardiner accounted for a 7lb salmon caught on a Flying ‘C’ lure from the Sand Hole. On Wednesday, Stan Kingham recorded an 8lb salmon caught on prawn from the Sea Pools. Pierre Hersante logged a 7lb salmon caught on a Rapala from the Island Pool and Jean Jacques Vandis registered an 8lb salmon caught on a spinner from the Washstones. On Friday, Jim Bowman recorded an 8lb salmon caught from the Washstones. On Saturday, Michael McEvoy accounted for an 8lb salmon caught on prawn from the Eel Weir.
The forecast for the coming week is for little rainfall which is a pity since we really need a drop of rain to raise water levels.
