Nigel Rush reports that the 100th salmon of the season was landed by James Barry from Cork, fishing with Jason Nash he landed a well-coloured cock fish in glorious autumn spawning livery. The fish was released again after a quick photo. The two lads thoroughly enjoyed their day on the river, exploring all the streams and pools that make up this fishing gem in deepest Connemara, and have vowed to return next season.

Unfortunately, further floods following Sunday’s heavy rain put the fishery out of order again, although it should be coming into perfect fishing order again for this final weekend of the season. Kylemore is well worth a throw for the last cast. To book fishing, contact Nigel at 087 9580702.
