Dabblers and bumbles catch rainbows and browns as Waterford warms up

March 31st, 2014 | by

Guide Jason O’Riordan of www.gamefishingireland.ie is situated in a great place and he makes the most of it.  One of his favourite haunts is Carrigavantry and Knockaderry and he reports:

The Waterford lakes have been fishing well of late.  When the temperature is up and the winds light there has been a great midge hatch.  Emergers have been working well for the large browns averaging 5lbs.

When conditions are suitable Carrigavantry is a super buzzer lake.  If the midge are hatching keep an eye out for rising trout sheltered areas.

These lakes are well worth a try in the coming weeks. Details on permits etc are available on the club website. www.waterfordflyfishing.com
