Frank Maunsell from the Owenmore Fishery reports:
The Boats on the two lakes were booked out at the week end by the same group. The White Lake fished very well on Saturday and Finnertys was a bit dour – there were only a few fish caught in it. The lads on the White Lake said they met fish on every drift. The fish averaged a lb to 1 1/2 lbs and they reckoned they landed over 25. They saw one fish of about 5 lbs jumping in the water and two or three good fish came to the fly and swirled and left it. That has been happening all the year.
We had a flash flood yesterday and the river rose by 18 inches so with the constant showers it will fish well for the next few days. A lot of the fish caught in the lakes over the week end were bars of silver which means they are still running straight through.

There are approximately five miles of fly fishing along the main part of the Owenmore River in Kerry, with 33 named pools and an additional 180 acres of lake fishing in this Kerry beauty spot. The salmon, grilse and sea trout begin to run in April. The runs continue through spring and summer into early October.
