Jason Nash from the Bandon Angling Association reports on how the River Bandon fished on opening day…
The Bandon opened on February 15th and anglers were met with beautiful fishing conditions.
Water Level: High and dropping. Excellent clarity.
Water Temp: 9.5 degrees Celsius.
No fresh fish to report but a few well mended kelts and trout were encountered.
Everyone headed to the Munster Arms Hotel, Bandon, who supplied all hungry anglers with soup and sandwiches, later in the evening to swop tales and plan their next trip to the river.
For the new year, Bandon Angling Association have set up a new website which you can view here. A new guiding service has been launched in conjunction with Jason Nash, Peter Aspinwall and Phil Dewey. Details of the guiding service are provided on the website and they are looking forward to making memories and enhancing people’s fishing experiences on the river Bandon.
