First salmon reported from Cork’s River Lee

1146

Salmon have been stirring down south as we have a report in of the first salmon to be caught on the River Lee in 2021. The lucky angler was Paul O’Leary and he caught the fish on a Flying C on the 11th March just downstream of the dam. He estimated the weight at around 8lb and the fish was safely returned to the water.

One goes back on the River Lee

We also have another report of a salmon from the Lee caught last Sunday. This one weighed in at 13lb and was caught on a red Flying C with a single barbless hook. It too was returned safely to the water.
