Angling report for week ending 27th June 2021
There were very few anglers on the river. The grilse run has started to hit the West of Ireland rivers and some of the Kerry rivers so their arrival into the Bandon is expected this week.
Unfortunately, the river water level dropped right back last week and coupled with bright weather weren’t good conditions for salmon fishing.
There is some rain due also at the weekend so we live in hope.
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.
