After all the rain the Bandon had a decent flood over the weekend that began to clear  this Monday. Jason Nash from the Bandon Angling Association reports on the catches and conditions on the River Bandon…

22 August: By Lunch time we had word that the high, coloured and dirty water up at Desert Bridge was clearing. At last, the clear out the river and fish needed!

Word of a couple fish met this evening on the Bandon but tomorrow onwards will produce the goods, depending on how much rain falls tonight. Plenty of salmon in the river to catch and this should encourage a fresh autumn run into the system. Reflecting on the past week, fishing picked up over the weekend as a few salmon were caught, mostly on the fly. Well done to club member Nicholas Tattersall who caught 2 and lost a couple more over the weekend. Both on the fly and released.

23 August: Mr. Dominic Moseley availed of our guiding service today and was delighted to catch this 4lb grilse upriver. Fishing was good along club waters, with a good few fish reported caught, including a couple fresh salmon. The river rose a few inches this afternoon and prospects for the rest of the week are fantastic.
