Fishery Manager, Rob Love reports on fishing at the Carton House Fisheries near Maynooth

Carton House fishery report 25/10/12

The Rye Water

Season 1st March – 30th September

The sheet of water

The sheet of water has continued to fish well over the last week.  Anglers have had success with several fly patterns including blobs, boobies, goldheads and a variety of lures.

Perhaps a little surprisingly fish continue to feed on or just below the surface especially if the day is mild.  Even more remarkable was the substantial hatch of Blue Winged Olives during the week with fish seen to come up to snaffle this delicacy.

For anyone less familiar with fly fishing we also offer spinning on this stretch of water although spinners must have ‘trebles’ removed and be reduced to a single hook (Carton House has a selection of spinners set up this way for visiting anglers).

Fishing is still half price for a 6 hour ticket at €25 per rod.  If you have any queries about the fishing on offer or would like further information please contact Guest Relations on 01.5052000 or me on 087 1947811.
