LAUNE SALMON AND TROUT ANGLERS’ ASSOCIATION WATERS AND BEAT 3

Angling Report 7th April (Email to Laune Angling Report)

Laune Salmon and Trout Anglers’ Association Waters and Beat 3.

As of Tuesday 7th April Laune now down to a beautiful 2 feet 6 inches on the gauge at Johnston’s.  Despite the lovely weather and the lovely water over the weekend angling effort was low.  In these lovely conditions I would expect to be hearing of catches of sea trout or even salmon soon.

But no news of fish from Laune Anglers waters over the last week.

Prospects: I think I said this time last year that 2014 would have to be better than 2013 it the same this time, surely 2015 can’t be as bad as 2014.

Permits for Laune Anglers waters from now to the end of July only €25 per day.

Beat 3:           Perfect water on Beat 3 but angling effort low to non-existent.

Anglers please note: A ‘One Day’ salmon permit for Beat 3 only costs €25
