25/4/21 Again it was all quiet on all fronts and as you can see by the picture it wasn’t an ideal day for the manipulations of producing a Wild Atlantic Salmon and for good reason, considering the draught conditions you could say the Currane Anglers are well Browned off. Wind ESE light to fresh and hardly a cloud in the sky.

26/4/21 Just in and just two out manipulating their lures this bright and sunny day, they’re all talking of a pink moon tonight, so hopefully they will be talking of a Salmon tomorrow. Wind was all over the place and light.

27/4/21 Three boats out and all members of the Brown tag hand be me down club, but there’s only one member of this exclusive club that takes all the headlines and for good reason, that’s the one and only, Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com while out trolling, caught and released a fine 5 lbs. Sea Trout. In the Salmon department all quiet on all fronts. Wind NNE light to fresh and variable, followed by April showers.

Find out more about Lough Currane…

The rivers and lakes of Waterville drain a large catchment and are regarded by many as the foremost Salmon and Sea-Trout fishery in the country. The lake system is well developed with access to boats and guides being readily available to the tourist angler. The Sea-Trout caught here are renowned for their size and quantity. For more details see

31/3/21 Just two Brown hand me down tag boats out on this calm and foggy day. Wind was light to calm and variable. Now to all you pessimistic anglers who were complaining that in the 2020 Season there were no Salmon in the Lake? We will put the record straight, to the best of my knowledge there were 160 Salmon caught and a good few more not reported.  Now let us head for the 2020 Hatchery Brood, just for the record the Salmon Brood was got with one swipe and I can tell you when the Currane system was fishing a lot better there was many occasions it was a dam site more difficult and took a lot more than one swipe. Now we head down stream into Lough Currane for 2021 Kelt Season just for the record there were 260 Kelts caught up to 22nd of March and counting and on average four boats fishing.
