Eileen Carroll reports on the Blackwater & tribs – Week ending 22/3/20
Trout angling good on Bride river & Funshion (tributary of Blackwater) also fishing well for Trout – No shortage of anglers on these rivers. Blackwater just starting to come good for Trout angling, however most of the bigger Salmon angling outlets are closed due to Covid 19 – no anglers coming from abroad. Local Salmon anglers starting to become more visible on river, possibly due to job losses associated with Covid 19 also. Salmon catches have improved with at least 4 Salmon recorded as caught since last week & possibly more, as Blackwater is in good condition.
