Munster Blackwater catches improve following floods

March 15th, 2017 | by

The Munster Blackwater had a lot of water after all the rain at the start of the month. The river is in good order now and there seems to be a few fresh fish in the system…

12 March: Well done to Danny Joy who just landed our first fish in March. The river has been too high to fish until this weekend. Conditions for the week ahead are looking very good.

15 March:  Billy Moylan had a nice salmon this afternoon. I have two remaining places on the Low Water Salmon Fishing course on Saturday 27th May.  This course is not suitable for beginners.  This course will focus on techniques for low water such as; stripping micro trebles and large flies, nymphing for salmon and furrowing flies.  Cost is €150 including fishing and lunch.  Maximum 6 participants and please contact me if you are interested in this course.

I am available for individual or group lessons/guiding at all other times.

Blackwater Salmon Fishery

Blackwater Salmon Fishery has 3 beats downstream of the weir and 2 upstream of the weir. Blackwater Salmon Fishery offers fishing on approximately 5 miles of the river Blackwater. The fishing is spread throughout the middle section of the river to offer good sport throughout the fishing season. Due to the location of the beats, fishing can still usually be offered in low or high water.

Ballyduff Bridge Salmon Fishery

Ballyduff Bridge fisheries control a number of beats of the Munster Blackwater. The Ballyduff Bridge beat is almost a mile long offering a huge variety of water and is particularly suited to fly fishing. Upstream near the village of Ballyhooley (a few miles outside the town of Fermoy, Cork) we have two beats. The Ballincurrig Beat is one of the most beautiful locations along the river and has an excellent piece of fly water flowing into a deep pool. Just downstream on the opposite bank we have a short but productive beat, called Magners. This beat fishes also well in high water.
