Frank Maunsell from the Owenmore Fishery reports:

12 June: After a long dry spell there is now light at the end of the tunnel. Rain forecast for Wednesday evening and broken for the rest of the week. We will need a lot of rain because the river was down to a trickle and the ground is rock hard and you could even walk across the bogs in your shoes. We have been fishing the estuary for the last 10 to 12 days because it was the only fishing available to us.

There were some fine fish throwing themselves and seatrout started entering the river in numbers on Sunday. If we get all the rain that is forecast there should be a terrific run of fish. South westerly winds would be the icing on the cake and there should be great fishing. With a bit of luck this should be the end of the factor 50.
