Patchy salmon fishing on the Slaney, hopes for a summer run

May 31st, 2016 | by

The Slaney River Trust reports on the salmon fishing along the river:

Fishing in May continued in the same pattern as March and April with small numbers of fish making a dash for the upper reaches. Some of these were intercepted by those lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time. Most beats have had fish and some anglers have had up to 3 fish in a day but fishing has been patchy.

This warm dry weather could well put an end to the Spring fishing for 2016 and the hope now is that the sea trout arrive. The first trout usually run at the start of June with the peak usually being the last week in June and the first week of July. There is also the hope of a summer run of grilse and salmon, which could materialise, as it did in 2012 when the main run of fish was very late, providing excellent sport in July.
