Blazing sunshine but anglers still managed 34 at Carrigavantry

September 28th, 2015 | by

PRO of Waterford City and County Trout Angling Association David Tantrum sends us this report from a gem of a fishery in Waterford, Carrigavantry and lets us know of upcoming events;

The annual Dick Doyle Memorial trophy was fished on Sunday in blazing sunshine but still the 18 competitors managed to catch 34 fish for a morning session allowing every one home in time for the rugby .  Dick would have been proud of the display by our youngsters who managed five fish on dry fly’s which shamed the rest of us who persisted in pulling wet fly’s.

The Winners…

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.
