There were a few more salmon from the Munster Blackwater at the weekend…

29 March: Jason Corcoran had another lovely salmon this morning from the Ballincurrig beat on the Ballyduff Bridge Salmon Fishery. The fish came to a size 8 cascade. Water temperature is sitting just above 9.5 degrees and the water level for the upper beats is sitting at 1.45.
Water level at Ballyduff is at 0.58. Jason reports that not much rain is forecast in the coming days and all beats will be fishable and prospects are looking very good.

Go Fishing…

Blackwater Salmon Fishery

Blackwater Salmon Fishery has 3 beats downstream of the weir and 2 upstream of the weir. Blackwater Salmon Fishery offers fishing on approximately 5 miles of the river Blackwater. The fishing is spread throughout the middle section of the river to offer good sport throughout the fishing season. Due to the location of the beats, fishing can still usually be offered in low or high water.

Ballyduff Bridge Salmon Fishery
Ballyduff Bridge fisheries control a number of beats of the Munster Blackwater. The Ballyduff Bridge beat is almost a mile long offering a huge variety of water and is particularly suited to fly fishing. Upstream near the village of Ballyhooley (a few miles outside the town of Fermoy, Cork) we have two beats. The Ballincurrig Beat is one of the most beautiful locations along the river and has an excellent piece of fly water flowing into a deep pool. Just downstream on the opposite bank we have a short but productive beat, called Magners. This beat fishes also well in high water.
