A great Knockaderry Cup competition saw two 5lb trout among the many caught

November 1st, 2016 | by

The Knockaderry cup was fished yesterday, Monday and Carrigavantry lake was well prepared for the eager anglers. A lovely warm Autumn day with a light wind and perfect conditions.

Even the fish co-operated, with two estimated 5lbs trout safely released and many fisherman’s tales of bigger ones lost.

Barry Healy had an incredible bag of 25 fish which was well ahead of Dudley Murphy who with 18 fish would have expected to have caught enough to win any competition !

The Knockaderry cup is an annual event run jointly by the Dunbullogue Anglers and the Waterford city and County Trout Anglers Association.

All the fish were caught on barbless hooks and release to fight again.  Knockaderry was open on the weekend and the few fisherman who fished there reported good bags of fish.

FLY FISHING ON KNOCKADERRY CARRIGAVANTRY BALLYSCANLON

Carrigavantry – This 30 acre reservoir is hidden in the hills behind Tramore. The lake can be fished from the dam and road and the rest of the lake shore needs waders. The deepest part is the island at 10 feet.Prolific hatches of lake olives and damsels occur. Stocking is with both browns and rainbows. You could loose your catch here to a 20lb Pike!

Knockaderry – The deepest part of the lake is 24 feet at the dam tower, the average depth is 6ft and this results in good weed growth. Trout fatten fast in this fertile water on caddis, snails and stickle backs, while lake olives,buzzers sedges and damsels bring on prolific rises. This 80 acre reservoir is a traditional top of the water drift fishery.

New members are welcome and an active programme of fly tuition is pursued to encourage beginners and get our youth out into the countryside.
