Dan O’Neill at the Mount Juliet Estate reports on the trout fishing on the Nore…

Loads of small trout are being caught , great news for the future of the Nore #CPRsavesfish

Water temperature has been above 15C all week. We are getting extreme fly hatches every evening. Nmphing has shown to be the best method until 7pm and then a change to wet fly “black spider” until around 9pm when the “sherry spinner” or “black gnat” takes over. There is an abundance of small trout in the rivers, which is great to see, as it shows successful spawning and gives us some hope of good trout fishing in years to come.

Nymph fishing is selecting some of the better fish #CPRsavesfish

Larger trout also have been caught mostly on nymph with some falling to a wet fly fished directly up stream. There also seems to be quite a number of dace along the stretch also, with shoals of them being seen in the shallows with the warmer temperatures of the last 10 days.

This trout fell for a bead head nymph. #CPRsavesfish

We are also seeing good number of small lampreys, still, amongst the gravel and also some common eels are showing their presence. The nearby lakes have quite  a number of boot lace sized eels in also,some great fishing since last reports went in.
