Week-Ending Sunday 13th September 2020
Last week was quiet again on the Bandon with little angling effort as the water levels dropped off. There were only a couple of fish reported and these were coloured. Hopefully we get some rain in the next week which should freshen the river up for the final few days of the season.
Week-Ending Sunday 6th September 2020
Last week was another slow week with fish very reluctant to take despite good numbers of fish in the river. Anglers are reminded that the use of prawn and shrimp are now prohibited since Sept 1st. The river is too coloured on the lower reaches for fishing due to the instream works being carried out in the town. The river is holding at a good height for angling at the moment and more rain is due in the coming days.
Bandon Angling Association have set up a guiding service in conjunction with Jason Nash, Peter Aspinwall and Phil Dewey. Details of the guiding service are provided on the website and they are looking forward to making memories and enhancing people’s fishing experiences on the river Bandon. Day tickets and club membership are also available.
Kilcoleman Fishery, Enniskeane, is renowned for its hospitality. The owners David and Patricia Lamb make a particular effort to make their guests feel at home. Past visitors have described the atmosphere as ‘laid back’ and the accommodations as ‘cosy’. Kilcoleman is “fly only” throughout the entire season. However, in certain water conditions, spinning is permitted for salmon. Trout angling is “fly only” at all times.
