Dan O’Neill, fishery manager at Mount Juliet is back again with more news from the Nore…

Water temperaturess are on the increase recently, as expected with the great weather and the river dropping. The seams and glides are taking shape now that the water has dropped.

We had a few anglers on the fishery the past few days, each trying there own favourite method. Wet fly claimed quite a few fish and was  probably the most productive. Nymph fishing was slow for the most part and the dry dropper was slow to medium.

There were plenty of trout in the 30cm feeding at the weekend

I managed a little bit of dry dropper at the top end of the fishery and had some great trout quite a few at 30cm and one great fish of 36cm. There were plenty of fish sipping on the flats as evening set in making for some great dry fly fishing. Huge hatches of flies swarmed the river channel making it look like a busy M50 zooming up and down. One stopping on my fishing rod for a quick break.
