Ian Powell reports that the Munster Blackwater is in flood at the moment. At almost 5 feet over the fishable level at Kilavullen it will be Monday before that river is in order though spinning may be an option in some places.


This weekend there is an open day at the Blackwater Lodge fishery and due to the unprecedented demand for this Casting Workshop/Open Day Ian and Glenda organised another for the weekend of May 4/5 which is also already booked. 40 or so anglers will be taking part in the weekend’s workshop so whatever the river does it will be a busy couple of days at the Blackwater Lodge.

Fishing Syndication: We initiated a very limited syndicate scheme in 2010. This was extended further in 2011 with membership for either the full season or just the first 4 months. This scheme will continue for 2012, providing an enticing opportunity for those who are able to fish the Blackwater more often. More details on this can be found on this link – Syndication
