Eileen Carroll reports that 14 salmon landed for the week, mostly on shrimp as low water conditions prevailed.  There are still fresh salmon running through the system in low water.  Most of the fish caught were grilse.

Bandon Angling Association would like to take this opportunity to remind all club members, and anglers in general, to be mindful of landowners property. Please take care of fencing and gates. If you need to open a gate or detach a fence to gain access, then close it immediately. Also, don’t park in front of gates, rendering the land inaccessible in what is a busy time of year for farmers.

Go Fishing…

Bandon Angling Association have set up a guiding service 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. Day tickets and club membership are also available.

Kilcoleman Fishery, Enniskeane, is renowned for its hospitality. The owners David and Patricia Lamb make a particular effort to make their guests feel at home. Past visitors have described the atmosphere as ‘laid back’ and the accommodations as ‘cosy’. Kilcoleman is “fly only” throughout the entire season. However, in certain water conditions, spinning is permitted for salmon. Trout angling is “fly only” at all times.
