John Flynn, IFI Clonmel reports on salmon and trout fishing on the River Suir.

River Suir –Salmon.

Last week only two days fishing is reported due to rising water levels. On those two days fish up to 25 pound were caught with fish in exces of that allegedely caught.  In Kilsheelan village waters, a local teenager landed a 25 lb. salmon.  Other fish in the 18 t0 23 lb. range were also caught  over those two days.

Today Monday 2nd July the waters levels on the Suir are bank high thus resulting in no fishing. It is expected to stay at his level for the coming week which will have a significant effect on local anglers.  Again like the River Nore, salmon have been caught up to the Thurles area with the Holy Cross area being the prime area.
