Low water levels hamper salmon fishing on many rivers in the Cork Kerry area

July 31st, 2014 | by

Eileen Carroll Murphy from the IFI office in Macroom reports on salmon fishing on a number of Salmon fisheries in the Cork Kerry area.

FOR WEEK ENDED SUNDAY 27TH OF JULY 2014

LAUNE SALMON AND TROUT ANGLERS’ ASSOCIATION WATERS AND BEAT 3

Angling Report 28th July (Email to Laune Angling Report)

Laune Salmon and Trout Anglers’ Association waters and Beat 3.

As of Monday 28th July water has fallen back to under 1 foot on the gauge at Johnston’s.  This water level is fine the problem is there seems to be very few fish around.  There were a few anglers who had some sport with sea trout but pulls from salmon are scarce.

Permits for Laune Anglers waters cost only €25 per day up to the end of July.  From the 1st of August permits will cost €35 still excellent value compared to other fisheries and the chances of a fish. 

Beat 3:  With the water fallen back the best prospects on Beat 3 is for some good trout fishing with the single handed rod.

Prospects: With the Cromane nets finishing on the 31st prospects should be getting better but not a lot will improve without a few feet of water.

Anglers please note: A ‘One Day’ salmon permit for Beat 3 only costs €25
