28/06/12: The water level is at just under 0.6 metres on the gauge. There was some heavy rain for a time last night but no major rise in water levels. The good run of grilse continues with some double figure fish also running. There was a large run of fish this morning, the largest run since Saturday when good numbers of fish were reported, especially on prawn, J. Walters and P. Filer accounted for nine fish between them last Saturday from the Lareen stretch on small pink prawn, the largest of which was 8lbs, releasing 4. Some of the larger fish in the past days were K. Connor’s 10lbs fish on fly from Scott’s Corner on the 22nd and B. Grimes 9lbs fish from the Old Sea Pool yesterday.
The weather for the weekend is showery with westerly winds, feeling colder than normal for late June. Milder, more settled weather is forecast for next week.
Tides are getting larger ahead of Monday’s new moon with tides of 4 metres plus.
