Fishery Manager David McEvoy reports on salmon fishing on the Delphi Fishery

Fishing conditions have become increasingly difficult since my last update with water levels now at 12cms.

We have however managed to land 3 fish since my last update.

Peter Joyce managed to land his second fish of the week while fishing with Paul Duffy. The fish was taken in the Rock Pool and again on a Willie Gunn. It weighed in at 10 lbs.

We then had 2 on Thursday off Finlough.

The first was taken by Paul Duffy and was well deserved as Paul doesn’t catch that many fish with us, so if any one deserved it he did. The fish weighed in at 12 lbs  12 ozs with sea lice and was taken on a Willie Gunn.

Per Axman one of our Swedish party had a fish of 7 lb. 13 oz. in the afternoon on a Sunrae Shadow.

Since then conditions have become increasingly difficult with not only low water levels but also winds becoming SE and squally.

Our new anglers coming in this week will have to concentrate more on the beauty of this place than the poor fishing conditions but here this can change at any time.
