Weekly update

Plenty of sea trout waiting to run at Owenmore, Kerry

May 15th, 2017 | by

Frank Maunsell from the Owenmore Fishery reports:

15th May 2017: Apart from a few wet days we have had hardly any rain since last November which is a record in West Kerry. The Bogs dried up so much it was like walking on tarmac. It will take a lot of rain for them to soften to hold water.

The Estuary is full of fish even the dolphins were having a go at them for a while. When they were chasing them some great trout were jumping to escape them, some of them looked like grilse even though it is a bit early for grilse yet.

We have an orange rain alert at the moment I hope it will last for at least a week. This will freshen up the system and there will be a good run of fish.

The salmon, grilse and sea trout begin to run in April. The runs continue through spring and summer into early October.
