Slaney River Trust Report: June 18th, 2013

While there are a few early arrivals in the river by and large the sea trout have been to slow to arrive in any numbers. I wonder whether like most things this year this very cold spring has delayed their arrival?

The two recent small floods have brought  a number of fresh salmon into the river.

The Sunday Independent reported on  9 June that the level of poaching had increased across the country – this has been reflected in a small number of individuals fishing illegally on the river  with the objective of taking and killing salmon. If you encounter any illegal activity please report it to IFI as soon as possible.

Orri Vigfússon  Chairman of NASF has been highly critical of NASCO’s failure to stop the resumption and escalation of commercial salmon fishing in the waters of Greenland – this fishery is of major concern to rivers such as the Slaney which depend on runs of multi sea winter salmon.
