Osgur Grieve reports on the catches and conditions on the Erriff in the last few days; 23rd – 28th August…


Aasleagh falls this morning

On Thursday 24th father and son Ashley and Lewis Matthews fished with us and released a grilse each of 2.5lbs and 3lbs from Nee’s run on beat 6 and the Boat pool on beat 5 using a black and yellow shrimp and a yellow shrimp. Hugh Jameson had a great afternoon releasing 3 grilse of 4lbs., 4.5lbs. and 5.5lbs. from the quarry pool on beat 2 using a Bann special in strong wind and rain, this equalled his tally of 3 for a day earlier on this season.

Pat Errity fished the afternoon on Friday 25th in very high water and released a fine 7lbs salmon and a 1lbs. sea-trout from the Quarry pool on Beat 2 using a Green-butt cascade.

Regular angler Seamus O’Neill had great sport on Saturday 26th releasing 3 grilse of 4lbs., 4.5lbs., and 5lbs. from Tawnyard potholes, school house run and mike’s pool on Beat 3 using a sunray shadow. Later that day Ian McDonnell released a fresh 2.5lbs. grilse from the gauge pool on an orange shrimp fly.

Alexander Mills fished the afternoon of Monday 28th and was rewarded with a 3.25lbs grilse from the school house on beat 3 using a silver shrimp.

At time of writing the river is at 1m and dropping, and with more rain forecast for tomorrow the river should rise again putting a stir on the fish once more.
