LAUNE SALMON AND TROUT ANGLERS’ ASSOCIATON WATERS AND BEAT 3

Laune Salmon and Trout Anglers’ Association waters and Beat 3.

As of Monday 26th September water steady and perfect at 2.25 feet on the gauge at Johnston’s and running clear and fishable by all methods especially fly.  Fishing conditions to Friday ‘Closing Day’ should be perfect.

There was a big fishing effort for the week and a lot of fish were caught and met by those who could get out.  Visiting members of the Association from France, Germany and England who have fished for the last few weeks are regularly catching fish some very good ones among them, up to 14lbs on the fly .  Permit Holders are having good fishing also.

Local members who are getting out are also meeting fish on a regular basis.  The best fish reported for the week was from Johnston’s a fish of 22lbs by Michael Wall on flying ‘C’ .  This writer had his first ever fish in Coffey’s on Monday evening a fresh fish of around 10 lbs followed by another similar fish a half hour later.  On Saturday evening 24th I had a sea-liced fish of about 6lbs.  What is noticeable is that the majority of fish being caught are mostly bright fish in good condition.

There were 28 salmon reported for the week.

Beat 3: The fishing on Beat 3 continues to disappoint as I would judge the water level to be perfect but most anglers are blanking there on all methods.

Note to Permit Holders:

Please not there may be a restriction on the sale of permits depending on demand.  Also note that Permit Holders cannot fish Johnston’s after the 15th of September.  You may be asked by any member to show your permit and make sure that you display the appropriate portion of the permit of on the dash of your vehicle.  Also our five Warranted Officers will be patrolling and checking for permits, these officers and indeed the members will be delighted to assist you with advice on tackle and where to fish.
