Croneen gathering but no run yet on the Brosna

September 27th, 2017 | by

Emma Stanley, IFI, reports that unfortunately, the run of Croneen still remains quiet of late. Although large amount visible at the mouth of the Brosna recently but to date they still haven’t decided to run the system.  Numbers appeared to be up a number of weeks back and hopes were abound that the rest would follow.  Unfortunately, Anglers in the Birr area are still waiting.

Trout have been caught sporadically in Lough Derg over recent days with weights ranging from 2lbs – 4lbs.

Bio Security: As always, we would kindly ask all who use Irelands watercourses to please use appropriate biosecurity measures for themselves so to help prevent the spread of invasive species in and out of the water.

Water Safety: It has been noted by Birr staff that there are a number of Anglers fishing from boats and on banks / stands where there is deep water who are not using adequate flotation devises.  We would kindly like to remind all about the importance of Life Jackets as they really do save lives. Adequate Flotation devices should be worn at all times and it especially sets a template regards water safety where younger Anglers are present.  It’s fantastic to see the range of ages fishing on the rivers and lake of the Lower Shannon River Basin District at the moment and there’s a promising new generation of Anglers starting to emerge.  However, the importance of water safety is something everyone needs to be aware of.

 “Take only memories, leave only footprints”.  As always, The Birr staff would like to ask all who are using the water courses in the area to be mindful of littering and to please use bins provided or take home their rubbish.
