Fisheries Information Manager Markus Müller reports from Ballisodare Fishery –  w/e  24th August 2014

With a total of 71 salmon caught, the Ballisodare Fishery saw a pretty good week. The majority of the fish were caught on the worm and fly (many released) and also an odd fish on the prawn.

Tuesday 19th August was the best day of the week with 27 fish caught (15 released). Amongst the successful anglers were Patrick O’Connor with 3 fish on the prawn (two released), Anthony Mulvey with two grilse on worm and Albert Berry who also had two fish on worm. Most fish ranged between 4 lbs. and 6 lbs.

Juvenile anglers, Jack and Danny McQuaid, had a very good day’s fishing on Wednesday 20th August catching two fish each on the worm averaging 4.5 lbs.

However, the best fish of the week was landed by Anthony McCann on Saturday weighing 11 lbs. and was taken on worm.

There are still a lot of fish coming in on the tides with some big fish showing.
