Vincent Appleby reports from Waterville:

24/7/19 All Salmon/ Grilse headlines comes from the North shore and the Bungalow, Currane Angler Mr. Ollie Bessie of Switzerland, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealouggcurrane.com caught a fine 4lbs. Grilse on the troll. For the rest of the Currane Anglers it was all quiet on all fronts. Wind South variable fresh and overcast. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 19.7 c.

25/7/19 The Currane Anglers were all quiet on the SW front. Wind SW strong and overcast followed by light rain. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 19.1c.

26/7/19 At last the Waterville Fishery got a good heavy down pour and in the words of Local Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com  and I quote, yes it was a very good flood, hopefully that will rise a few anglers into action as well as the Currane Salmon and Sea Trout and talking of Sea Trout, Currane fly Angler, Dr. Tim O’Connor of Waterville and Cork, caught and released a fine 2 ½ lbs. Sea Trout today, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of   www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com  Wind West and bright and sunny all day. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall. 22.8 mm. Maximum air temperature 20 .3 c.

27/7/19 The Currane Anglers were all quiet on all fronts and to be fair it takes a few days for the Big Lake to settle down after a big flood. Now for quote of the day and in the words of local Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com on today’s procedures, I have nothing to report. Wind WSW light to fresh and bright and sunny all day. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.3 c.

28/7/19 All Salmon headlines come from the North side and Waterville Boats harbour and at [email protected] Currane Angler Mr. Peter Thornton of Chicago, USA, while trolling with his Gillie Mr. Michael O’Sullivan of Waterville Boats and at  [email protected] caught a fine 4 lbs Grilse and for the rest of the Currane Anglers it was all quiet on all fronts. Wind NNE light with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17. 8 c.

29/7/19 All the C&R Sea Trout action comes from the Bungalow on the North Shore and at www.oshealoughcurrane.com Currane fly Angler, Mr. Gerald Ford of Kildare, caught a fine C&R 3 lbs. Sea Trout on the drift while fly fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and considering the wind was ENE as everyone knows that a NE isn’t an ideal wind. Wind as already stated and reasonable cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.2 c.

30/7/19 The Lough Currane Anglers rods and reels were all quiet in all departments, which isn’t surprising with the wind in the NE and that flood we got will be soon gone down into the Wild Atlantic and not the Currane Anglers way, if you get my drift! Wind as already stated. Yesterday’s weather 18.8 c

31/7/19 Straight to the C&R ST index from the North Shore and the Bungalow and at www.oshealoughcurrane.com Currane fly Angler, Mr. Ollie Bessie of  Switzerland, C&R 2 Sea Trout, while fly fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and for the rest of the Currane Angling news this last day of July was all quiet on all fronts. Wind was all over the place from NE to N to NW but not necessarily in that rotation, bright and sunny all day. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17 .5 c.

1/8/19 Well August got off to slow start as all Salmon and Sea Trout stations were all quiet on all fronts, which is not surprising because there was bright sunshine and very light to calm wind from the West. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 18.2.
