Fishery manager Nigel Rush reports that last week was…”a cracking week but not many fresh fish. The week produced 21 salmon for just 17 rod days, the best week of the season so far, with Geoffrey Fitzjohn securing his best ever half day at 7 fish to 6lbs. Neil Spellacy, Moycullen landed 3 fish to approx. 9lbs for a half day, and the other regular fish irritator Seamus O’Neil landed a good few fish also.  We did have our second lady angler securing her first ever grilse at 4lbs from Dominiques on the Upper River – Nadine Dintilhac from France…well done.

Sea trout fishing has been mixed with the lake conditions and temperatures remaining high, but I’m convinced that they will ‘wake up’ the day after tomorrow!”
