Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane…
30/7/20 Floods are the main news as the Inny Fishery was put on hold as the Inny bridge was closed for a good while this morning. Now we head for Copal Lake where a bridge cracked in half as you can see by the photo. Now we head for the Commeragh River, again you can see there was a big flood coming down into Lough Currane, in fact the flood was so big you could not take your car down to Derriana, amount of rainfall was 54.5 up until midnight last night, on today’s rainfall I will give you the full facts tomorrow, staying with the rain fall again they are forecasting 20 mm to 40 mm of rainfall in the next few hours.
Today’s fishing, well as you can imagine Lough Currane was on the dirty side and just for the record I have no reports of any rod benders on Lough Currane, where the Inny is concerned, their voices may have been silent but you can sure a few reels were bellowing.
31/7/20 Lough Currane on the rise after the big floods and will be still rising for the next couple of days, staying with the white water, there was a fine good flood still coming down the River Inny, so you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that the Currane anglers converted to the Inny Anglers and the rest I will leave to your C&R imagination. Going back to Lough Currane there was one boat out from the Southside. Wind Southwest and veered Northwest light with good cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather amount of rainfall 16.8 mm. Maximum air temperature 18.7 centigrade.
1/8/20 All quiet on all fronts. Wind Southwest light with reasonable cloud cover followed by the odd shower, humidity 90%. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 16.8 mm. Maximum air temperature 18.7 centigrade.
2/8/20 The Currane anglers were all quiet on all fronts and the same goes for the Inny and Commeragh. Wind West light with reasonable cloud cover, humidity 86%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 16.9 centigrade.
3/8/20 Well this August Bank Holiday Monday did see a few boats out manipulating their flies and lures and by all accounts their efforts did not precure anything substantial, ahh but as I say that there is a rumour that there was at least one caught? And on the World Famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie in today and yesterday saw 3 Salmon caught. Wind Southwest light with reasonable cloud cover at times, humidity 79%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.0 centigrade.
4/8/20 All quiet on the Southwest front, the same could not be said on the weather front and for good reason, Kerry is on a yellow rain warning, just for the record, Waterville is forecasted to get 13.5 mm of rainfall but if you take the rainfall in high mountains into consideration it could be a lot more? Wind South Southwest light and overcast followed by rain coming in this evening. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.5 centigrade.
5/8/20 Flood was spot on. There were a couple fly Anglers fishing The Butlers Pool this morning but as of yet no reports from the world famous Butler Pool and of www.watervillegolflinks.ie the same goes for the Inny and Commeragh Rivers and the same goes for the Currane Anglers and as I have said many times the majority of the Currane anglers had their Inny pro C&R hats on. Wind West light with reasonable cloud cover, humidity 88%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 19.0 centigrade.
