Eileen Carroll Murphy from our Macroom office tells us that there were 22 salmon reported last week on the Bandon.  The majority of these were coloured fish that were in the river with some time.

Jason Nash reporting for the Bandon Angling Association water writes that as autumn truly takes a hold of West Cork, lower temperatures have woken up the resident fish which are providing some sport. The odd fresh fish is still running, however they are fairly thin on the ground. Water levels are running at a consistent level now as rain has kept the river fresh.

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.
