Eileen Carroll Murphy from the Macroom office reports:
There were 6 salmon landed for the week ending 22 April on club waters. The best fish was 12lbs. Water levels were high.
Below is a video from Paul Hanley, of the http://salmonfishingireland2012.blogspot.ie/ blog, where fishing on the Lee last week he catches his first salmon of 2018.
The River Lee drains a catchment of 484 square miles of which much is taken up by two large reservoirs. Salmon Angling is confined to an 8 mile stretch from Inniscarra dam to Cork city.
Lee Salmon Anglers Club
The Lee Salmon Anglers club was established in 1967. It was formed by a group of anglers interested in protecting and promoting the sport of salmon and trout angling on the river Lee. Day tickets available: http://www.leesalmonanglers.ie/
This salmon fishery is located between Cork City and the dam at Inniscarra (9 miles). The fishery is run by the ESB (Electricity Supply Board) and an ESB permit is required. There is a fair run of fish with a very good grilse run dependent on water. Permits can be purchased on site from Dan O’Riordan, ESB Inniscarra; 087-9983879.
