Still salmon to be caught on the Drowes

September 27th, 2017 | by

With rain showers throughout the week water levels remained good over the week. The gauge was reading 0.74m at the start of the week and the river dropped to 0.67m by Friday but then rose over the next 24 hours to 0.73m on Saturday. By the end of the week the river was still at 0.69m. The river fished well given the lower attendance at this late stage of the season with salmon up to 10lb caught. Many salmon caught were coloured but there was also fresh fish caught as the late run continues. A French party of 3 recorded 19 salmon/grilse caught for their 10 days fishing. One Swiss visitor caught 4 salmon for his week’s visit. Michael Joyce of Sligo, recorded 3 grilse caught one day with 2 of these being released again.
