26/8/2022 The Waterville Fishery was all quiet in all departments this day. Wind NW light and variable followed by bright sunshine all day.
27/8/2022 Great to report a bit of action this day, In the Salmon/Grilse department there was 1 Grilse caught on the troll. Now we head for the dry fly department, one boat manipulating their dry flies caught 7 Trout and that’s no mean feat and the same goes to the Salmon/ Grilse department. Wind variable and light from the SE to the SW followed by reasonable cloud cover.
28/8/2022 Just a few Trout caught this day and yes, yesterday’s catches were Sea Trout as they were today. As you can see by the photo it was fairly calm this day, wind SE light and variable and very warm this afternoon.
29/8/2022 Two Trout caught on the drift and fair play to them because as you can see by the picture the conditions certainly were not ideal. Wind SE light and variable. Just for the record there was one Butler Pool angler manipulating his flies and as of yet I have no reports of any rod benders.
30/8/2022 The Currane Anglers were all quiet in all departments this bright and sunny calm day as you can see by the photo of Ballinskelligs Bay. Wind ESE light to calm.
31/8/2022 The Currane Anglers were all quiet on all fronts today and in my opinion this is very appropriate especially to the Currane anglers because today Curran’s Mace Supermarket opened their doors today for the last time and sadly there’ll be no rush in the future to Curran’s Supermarket and tackle shop to get the first Salmon licence or investing in a new Rapala. So on behalf of the Currane anglers and the good people of Waterville, Dromid, Caherdaniel, Ballinskelligs, and all the surrounding areas, we wish all the Curran Family and their staff all the best for the future. I can say you will be missed.
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.
