Laune Salmon and Trout Anglers’ Association reports on the latest salmon catches on the river…

29 April: Angling on Laune Anglers waters has been relatively slow for the month of April. Water levels were high for the most of the month but over the 2 weeks the fishing has improved and some good salmon have been caught including a fine fish of approximately 18lbs caught on the fly by club Secretary Danny Joy. There were also fish of 13lbs, 10.5lbs and several between 6lbs and 10lbs reported. Spinning has been the most productive method.

Seatrout fishing has been slow enough to date but there been some good ones caught up to 3.5lbs. 

Spring clean 2019

On the 13th of April the Laune Anglers took part in the Kerry County wide clean up. Our members collected 18 bags of litter all sorts of waste such as tyres, traffic cones, old signs etc from the banks of the river Laune. Big thanks to all 16 members for their good work.


Storm Hannah didn’t have much effect on the rivers level and it is currently at 1.29m on the gauge and dropping back again. There is some rain forecast for later tonight however it is unlikely to have much effect on the river so conditions should only improve as the week goes on.

Prospects are looking good for the month of May.
