Frank Maunsell reports on the conditions and prospects on the Owenmore Fishery in Co. Kerry…

10/07 We had a big flood for five days and the continuous showers kept the water levels up so that it was perfect for day fishing.

There were some good sea trout caught and we had one salmon over 8 lbs. our first on the rod for this year. The lakes fished very well and most of the fishermen that arrived had some fish.

We were one of the few rivers in the Country that had a lot of water so being under Brandon Mountain has its advantages.

There are approximately five miles of fly fishing along the main part of the Owenmore River in Kerry, with 33 named pools and an additional 180 acres of lake fishing in this Kerry beauty spot. The salmon, grilse and sea trout begin to run in April. The runs continue through spring and summer into early October.
