Water Height:  As of  Saturday 23rd June water now stable at just under 4 feet on the gauge at Johnston’s, high and clear, ( unless the Gwestin brings colour into the Laune). A bit high for fly fishing but from Monday next  should be perfect for all methods.

Up to Wednesday of the past week it was difficult to meet a fish on any method but that all changed on Thursday with fish being met on several fisheries.  Tom Curtayne from Killorglin had a fish of 9.5 lbs on Thursday and bettered that on Friday with a beauty of 17 lbs at the Rock Pool spinning.

There were fish also caught on Beat 3 with one angler having fish of 11 lbs and 6 lbs.

Sea Trout: Sea trout are being caught on all methods especially on small flies later in the evening.

Prospects:  With the excellent water and fish being caught in the second half of the past week I would say that the coming week is the best prospects we have had so far this season.  Get fishing on Sunday and especially in the early days of next week.

Beat 3:  Excellent water in Beat 3, high but fishable and fish being caught there.  Well worth a try.  The recent maintenance done on the Beat has met with universal approval of local and visiting angler alike.
