June 25th, 2012 Last weeks big floods may have led to the cancellation of the casting class but it also brought some fresh fish into the river. Based on very limited reporting Saturday and Sunday saw at least 3 fresh salmon all over 10lbs landed. On Saturday 2 salmon and a large bag of seatrout to one rod on streamer flies were reported in the Kildavin Area and another salmon was landed near Clohamon on Sunday despite the guage being at flood levels.
Once the level drops I expect that we will find that the seatrout have been well ditributed through out the system.
