Emma Stanley from our Carrick on Suir base reports on the local trout fishing…

A member of Thurles Suir and Drish District Anglers reported plenty of large trout on the Upper reaches of the Suir and its tributaries. Anglers reported catches of 2lbs to 4.5lbs.

Trout have been slow to get going along the Carrick on Suir area even with hatches of mayfly & black knat on the water. Anglers state however, that conditions for trout fishing remain good in the Carrick region.

Bio Security: As always, we would kindly like to remind all who use Irelands watercourses to please use appropriate biosecurity measures for themselves so to help prevent the spread of invasive species in and out of the water.

Water Safety: The Carrick staff would kindly like to remind all about the importance of using Life Jackets in and around water as they really do save lives. Adequate Flotation devices should always be worn and it especially sets a template regards water safety where younger Anglers are present.

 “Take only memories, leave only footprints”. The Carrick staff would like to ask all who are using the water courses in the area to be mindful of littering and to please use bins provided or take home their rubbish.
