Carrigavantry stocked for summer angling

June 30th, 2017 | by

David Tantrum tells us that Waterford City and County Trout Angling Association  has just completed their summer stocking of Carrigavantry. They are asking all their anglers to follow the catch and release guide lines from Inland Fisheries Ireland – http://fishinginireland.info/catchandrelease.htm.

These 3lb Rainbows, when the water is warm need plenty of time to recover, so please take your time and allow them to catch their breath.

Water clarity in both lakes is good and both lakes have a large head of grown on rainbows and browns.

Take advantage of the cooler weather and go fishing!

Going in or coming out….


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.
