Nigel Rush reported that Kylemore Abbey Fishery enjoyed another successful week with a total of 16 salmon reported. With a 4.5 lbs. grilse from the Yellow Banks on the Middle River, Geoffry Fitzjohn landed the 100th salmon on the fishery this year. Other successful anglers included Pat Burns with two salmon of 4 lbs. and 10 lbs. from the Lower River and Seamus O’Neil who had a fine salmon estimated at 15 lbs. from the Middle River. Andy Ffelts also did very well with a total of 6 grilse for his three day trip.
Water levels are dropping away again after last week’s heavy rain, but with impressive numbers of sea trout running the system fishing on the lakes should remain good for the next week.
