Brian Stevens, Slaney River Trust, reports on the last week’s fishing on the Slaney…

As water levels fell further during the week fish were reported off  4 of the lower beats with a number of lucky anglers meeting 2 or more fish on the day. Those beats reported fish on a number of days – a bit of consistency at last.  Despite the  pick up it has not been a red letter year so far.

Michael McCormack’ s springer 35″ long and very deep

Michael McCormack’ s had a fine springer on Friday on a size 10 cascade on a beat close to Ballycarney. Another fantastic quality fish from the Slaney.

Even in the lower water copper tubes still seem to being doing the business including  the 10lber caught by Anthony Walsh on Riversdale on Sunday.

Tiernan Sludds landed the first of the season from the Enniscorthy stretch

Also on Sunday the Tiernan Sludds landed this 13lber which was only the  first of the season from the Enniscorthy stretch.
