Frank Maunsell from the Owenmore Fishery reports:

11th September 2015 We had a red tide in the Estuary on Wednesday. Some small seatrout were killed and lots of sand eels which would be their main food down there. The following tide on Wednesday an amount of seatrout entered the system. The bottom four pools were blue with seatrout whether it was the tide that drove them in or they were expecting the rain they are in the system anyway.

Even though lots of these seatrout were small there were a few good fish in them up to 2 or 3 lbs. We have heavy rain at the moment , the flood is rising. It will probably be tomorrow before the river will fish. The weather is broken for the rest of the week so the fishing should continue for the next five or six days.
