Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane…
22/7/21 Last night Kerry became a tropical County with a night temperature of 20.5c, the last time this happened was 20 years ago and at 2.15 pm today the temperature outside in Caherdaniel was 32c. Admittedly on the lake it would not be as hot as that, but I can tell you one thing you wouldn’t last long on any of the Island’s. just for the record there were anglers on the Butlers pool, I did not hear of any rod benders. Wind light SE light with a few light gusts.
23/7/21 Again today the tropical Currane anglers and fish alike kept well away from the barbeque as temperatures rocketed again today, but there is a bit of light at the end of the tunnel as you can see by clicking www.met.ie/weather-forecast/waterville-kerry one might say the C&R Inny Anglers will be hoping to journey forth, as will the Salmon. Staying with the weather, yesterday was another tropical day and night as you can see at www.met.ie/latest-reports/observations/yesterday Wind ESE light and variable, bright and sunny all day.
24/7/21 Again it’s the Currane Barbeque that takes all the Currane headlines and as they say a picture tells the story as you can see by the photo, but it was great to see a few enthusiastic anglers on the World-famous Butler Pool today. Just for the record the temperature reached 30c at 1.45 pm in Caherdaniel, in Waterville the air temperature was 22c this evening at 8 pm. Wind NE light to calm.
25/7/21 The Currane barbeque was the same as yesterday, the air temperature was 25c in the morning in Waterville come afternoon in Caherdaniel it reached 30c with clear skies.
26/7/21 Well the barbeque has gone, and cooler and unsettled weather moves in at last, we did get a drop of light rain throughout the day, but you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that the Waterville Fishery needs an almighty flood, going by Waterville’s predicted rainfalls My Noble Currane and Inny anglers may have to wait a bit longer especially the C&R Inny manipulators? Wind NNW light to fresh and overcast all day.
27/7/21 All quiet on the SW front and not surprising as the water levels get lower every day, that sums up today news and weather. Wind NNW light with reasonable cloud cover.
28/7/21 The Currane Anglers are frustrated with the low water conditions and that’s not surprising, because trying to catch My Noble Gentlemen in these conditions is like getting blood from a stone, mind you Lough Currane is a great Lake for proving the books wrong so if you have the patience its worth having a crack even though the odds are against you. Wind WNW fresh with reasonable cloud cover with the odd shower.
29/7/21 Well we did get some rain but in fishing language, forget it. I believe there was one boat out by all accounts all was quiet, well going by the phone.
