Ghillie/Guide Vincent Appleby reports on the salmon and sea trout fishing in the past week on the Lough Currane system:

12/02/2015 Here is the metrological  report for Lough Currane, heavy rain forecasted for late this evening and clearing to showers by morning. On the Wild Atlantic Salmon front no comment. Wind SE then veered SW this evening and overcast all day.

13/02/2015 They say Friday the 13th is unlucky for some? Well it was certainly unlucky for my Noble Anglers or they just can’t fish, one or the other. Wind NNW and blustery with heavy showers at times, on that note, we head for photography department and the http://www.irishlifeboats.com/ RNLI Valentia.

14/02/2015 Mr. Noel Clancy of Dublin and Waterville was the Lough Currane Valentines winner with a cracker of a 13 ½ lbs. Salmon caught on the troll and for the rest of the angling community they failed to record any action. On the weather front bright sunshine and calm.

15/02/2015 Lough Currane was on the quiet side today, after yesterdays Valentines beauty. Wind East and there was heavy rain this evening.

16/02/2015 The Waterville Hatchery came up trumps again when Local Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton Snr, caught a fine wild Atlantic Waterville Hatchery 9 lbs. Salmon on the troll, so here are the Waterville Fisheries Scores, Hatchery 2 Rivers 1. Wind NW fresh with showers. Now to the back date department. Yesterday 15/2 Mr. Noel Clancy of Dublin and Waterville, caught 3 Kelts on the troll. On a reporting note it’s a pity other Anglers don’t take a leaf out of Noel’s book and report their action and there is a good reason, it also gives the reader an idea on the spawning front, not that is a precise monitor but its better than nothing.

17/02/2015 All quiet on the SW front, in other words my Noble Anglers failed to procure my Noble Salmon. Wind W fresh and overcast.

18/02/2015 The weather takes the headlines, with a strong SW wind blowing down the lake, all Angling stations on the North side were at a standstill. There were no reports from the South Side either. Wind as already stated and overcast with misty rain.

That is your ration from the opening days on Lough Currane, from your Gillie and the Waterville Fishery, no spin no fly’s just facts.
