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



Monday 21st : Plenty of fly life about and lots of small to medium trout showing their presence. Water temperature was 14.1 degrees. Water height was .43. There were 2 anglers on the fishery. Between them they had 9 trout to a pound. All fish in great condition and are plumping up nicely.

Tuesday 22nd : Another nice day today. Water height still at .43.Water temp slightly higher at 14.3 degrees. 2 trout anglers in today for a short session. They managed 4 trout all on nymphs,

Wednesday 23rd : Warm start again today and warm throughout the day. No anglers fished early morning or during the day. I went for a walk along George’s Wall late evening and there was quite a lot of action on the surface.Awater reading of .41 on the gauge and water temp of 14.5 degrees was taken.

Thursday 24th : Slightly overcast start with water now at .40 and temp of 14.5C. Nice hatches with a few sedges showing themselves, the odd mayfly floating about and a sighting of a lamprey eel just behind the weir. 2 people went out at midday and fished till 4pm they had 5 nice trout to three quarters of a pound. A nice introduction to fishing for the 2 people in question,the method they were using was nymphing.

Friday 25th : Another slightly overcast day with a lot of humidity. Fly hatches started early with the first out at 6am. Water was at .38 on teh guage and water temp was at a higher 14.8C. 4 people out fishing today having 12 trout between them to 1 pound. Some on the “f fly” and some on “black ant” also some on the trusty “ptn”.

Saturday 26th : Another warm start, slightly cloudy. I had 2 people out at 6am for some early trout fishing. We fished till 10am and had 11 trout. The water was at .38 and water temp was 14.3C. We started out nymphing with various patterns and had great success. Around 9am the fish were hitting the surface quite regularly so switched to dry fly and had some added fun with them. At 3pm I had another man out and we fished Pebble Beach. We gave it 2 hours and had 5 nice trout between us.

Sunday 27th: Overcast start this morning, heavy rainfall last night and thunder in Kilkenny.  Water height back up to .40 and water temp a nice 15 degrees. My first trip was with Jeff and Carl Weedman. Both accomplished anglers and very fine lure fishermen. Jeff and Carl had some trout on a small silver mepps, they then tried some nymphing and it didn’t take long before they had some action there also. My second trip of the day was at 1pm with an angler from Canada. We fished PebbleBbeach and had 5 nice brown trout all to 1.5 pound using various nymph patterns. We later tried a pool near the estate boundary and had a couple of small trout and 3 dace.
