31/3/2022 There were five boats out manipulating their lures on this last day of March. Spygate reports there were no takers of the Wild Atlantic Salmon, his quote of day was, I’m not surprised because the lake is on the low side which isn’t surprising considering the lack of rain and followed by Easterly winds and there is no argument to that on that quote. Wind NE light and bright sunshine all day.

1/4/2022 Two Brown Tag Anglers fishing together this day reported their day was a success when catching a fine 7 lbs on the troll and for the rest of the Currane anglers it was all quiet on the SW front. Wind NNE light, bright and sunny all day.

2/4/2022 There were a few boats out this day and for all their efforts all was quiet in all departments. Wind NE and veered North followed by April showers and cold.

3/4/2022 As we all know today is the day of the census, well there was only one 10 lbs salmon to report on today’s Currane Salmon and Sea Trout census, caught by two Brown tag anglers while trolling. Wind NE early this morning and veered NNW light and variable followed by the odd April shower.

4/4/2022 Just three boats out manipulating their skills this day, in the words of one Brown tag angler and I quote, as you would say Appleby, my Noble Salmon were all quiet in all departments. Wind NW light to fresh and overcast.

5/4/2022 There were a good few boats out this day and at least one Brown tag manipulator procured a fine Wild Atlantic Salmon. For the rest of the Currane Anglers it was all quiet. Wind W veered SW fresh followed with strong gusts up to 39 mph, especially in the afternoon.

6/4/2022 All the action was along the North shore and for good reason, our Chairmen of the Angling association Mr. Michael Roden, while trolling the North Shore caught a cracker of a 11 lbs Salmon, Michael’s quote of the day, Caught a beautiful fresh 11lbs Salmon and it was very rough out there.  Wind Fresh to strong with reasonable cloud cover.
