Temperatures dropped back on the week beginning 18th of June with cloud cover and showers frequenting the region. But, by the beginning of the week of the 25th of June Temperatures and conditions have changed drastically with Ireland seeing temperatures soar.  Currently, Ireland is seeing some of the hottest temperatures in decades with clear skies and sun forecast for the coming 7 to 10 days.

Trout fishing has been slow of late.  Anglers have reported some catches in the evening on the fly but overall Trout fishing has been slow over the past week.

Bio Security: As always, we would kindly like to remind all who use Ireland’s 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.

Sun Safety: As Ireland is currently enjoying one of the hottest weeks in decades we are advising Anglers and all who use the water courses in the SERBD to use adequate sun protection and cover up where possible. It is not advisable during these hot days to spend prolonged periods of time exposed to the sun, especially in or on water.
