The good fishing on the Bandon continued last week. There were about 15 salmon reported.  The river levels remained good and most of the fish were caught on shrimp and fly.  Many of the fish caught were late spring fish with one salmon of 15lbs reported but the grilse are also starting to appear.

The weather at the time of writing is broken and water levels will be topped up again making for good fishing conditions again this week.

Go Fishing…

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.
