Windy conditions on Currane, only a couple of salmon landed

April 5th, 2017 | by

Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane where the warm weather of the weekend revitalised the fishing…

30/3/17 Lough Currane was on the quiet side today after yesterday’s cracker of a day and for good reason. It was fairly wild out there today with a strong SW wind blowing. There were six boats out and by all accounts it was hard, especially in the fly department, reason being its damn hard to hold a boat for long in those rough conditions. So today all anglers are exonerated for not procuring  a wild Atlantic Salmon. Wind as already stated, overcast with heavy showers. Amount of rainfall yesterday 6.7mm.

31/3/17 There were just 3 boats out manipulating and sadly there was no stimulation in their flies or their lures on this day on Lough Currane. In other words My Noble Anglers failed miserably in their duties in all departments. Wind SW and overcast with heavy showers at times. Amount of rainfall yesterday 5.0mm. Maximum air temperature 12.9c.

1/4/17 As we all know today was April Fools day and my Noble Anglers take the Lough Currane Wild Atlantic Salmon April Fools plaque with honours! Need I say more! Wind North and gusty with reasonable cloud cover. Rainfall 5.2mm, maximum air temperature 12.6c. Just for the record there were 9 boats  manipulating.

2/4/17 Straight to the Action and the trolling department. First thing this morning Mr. Peter Murphy, caught a fine 9 lbs. Salmon, while fishing with is Gillie. Now we head for the afternoon session. German Angler, and no stranger to the Waterville Fishery, Mr. Peter Rall caught a fine 9lbs. Salmon on the troll with his Gillie Mr. Bob Priestley.
Wind SW with good cloud cover, rainfall 0.1mm. Maximum air temperature 11.6c.

3/4/17 Lough Currane was at a standstill with a strong SW wind, but I say that with a stutter because one boat did venture out and I presume headed for the Mouth of the Commeragh for a bit of fly action. All I can report there was plenty of casts but no takers. In the words of the Gillie in question, Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com “No good and a bit rough and I was the only boat out” and that sums up today’s action. Wind as already stated and overcast with heavy rain at times and made a flood. Amount of rainfall 0.1mm. Maximum air temperature 11.7c. Just to let you know there is good news on sponsorship department, Inland Fisheries Ireland announces sponsorship for Kerry angling initiatives.

4/4/17 Wild yesterday and calm today and I will put it in a nutshell, my Noble Anglers failed miserably in their duties in all departments. Wind NE light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Amount of rainfall yesterday 21mm.

That is your ration from the last week on Lough Currane, from your Gillie and the Waterville Fishery, no spin no fly’s just facts.
