Not many salmon reported from Munster Blackwater

April 20th, 2017 | by

In the last week we have seen only one salmon reported from the Munster Blackwater. On Wednesday last week a fine, fresh sea-liced fish was landed by one of Glenda Powell’s anglers on the Blackwater Salmon Fishery beats.

Anglers fishing and taking casting instruction at Ballyduff Bridge fishery enjoyed their time on the water but were not lucky enough to meet a fish while plying their trade.

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.
