Dan O’Neill at the Mount Juliet Estate reports on the trout fishing on the Nore…

Monday 28th May: B nice start to the day. 4 anglers booked in to trout fish on various runs. The water level dropped slightly to .39, the water temperature was 14.8C. Between the four anglers they had 9 trout and 3 dace. The trout fell to dry flies and nymph tactics. we also saw a couple of lampreys about that had died after spawning and got caught up in the back eddys.

Tuesday 29th May: A great day today some strong fly hatches early on in the morning and through until lunch time. Water level stayed at .39 and water temperature was reading 14.9C at 11am. We had 2 anglers trout fishing. Between them they had 4 trout all on nymph. Sshoals of minnows lined the shallows and trout fed strongly from early morning till lunchtime. It quietened down then until 4.30pm the trout then fed until dark.

Thursday 31st May: No trout anglers on the fishery today.
