Fishery manager Terry Gallagher reports that grilse are running in Costello, with 6 more fish since the last report.

Paraic McDonagh took a 6lbs grilse from Beat 1 on a Black Shrimp, Geoffrey Fitzjohn landed a 6 lbs grilse off Beat 2 (on, surprise surprise, a Black Shrimp!) and Peter McDonagh took a 9 lbs salmon from Beat 1 on a Connemara Black.

3 more fish were reported later in the week, all from the Cabbage Pool on Beat 1 and all on the Black Shrimp. Geoffrey Fitzjohn had a 4lbs 8oz grilse on Sunday, while Sean Kelly had 5lbs and 3lbs 8oz fish on Monday evening.

That brings the rod catch to 13 salmon for the year so far, 11 of which have been caught this month.
