Lindsey Clarke reports from OWENEA FISHERYMonday 18th to Sunday 24th August 2014.

There was little rain this week once again save for a few showers at the start of the week. There was fair water on Monday (0.21m) and Tuesday (0.22m) but the river then fell and gave low water conditions for the rest of the week. The gauge average for the week read a disappointing 0.15 metres. The fishery was reasonably attended given the overall conditions with 39 visiting rods fishing for the week. There were a number of salmon caught during the better water at the start of the week. On Monday, Brian Smith recorded a 2½ lb grilse caught on a fly from beat 9. Ron Towner reported 2 grilse weighing 4 & 7lb caught on worm from beat 9. Andrew Gallagher registered 5lb grilse caught on a fly from beat 3 and Dessie Coyle accounted for 2 salmon weighing 6 & 7lb caught on a fly from beat 7. I await confirmation of other catches.
