Brian Curran, fishery manager at Costelloe & Fermoyle, reports on the month’s fishing:
With some small increases in water levels as we only have short rain bursts over the past number of days, it has been enough to bring the fish alive again after a few sultry weeks of high water temperatures.
The O’Rorke party fished weekend of 27/28 had 5 small seatrout for 6 rods during what was a slow period. With wind and some showers David McDonagh, home from England and a native of Spiddal/ Furbo had 3 seatrout on Glen on Friday 2nd Sept, 3 on Crumlin ‘s Ugga Beag and 9 on Clogher on Monday 5th with many more lost.
The Carraroe Club fished Glen on Sunday and best angler was Myles Costello with 8 seatrout followed by Jason Folan with 4, the other 6 rods had 9 between them .
Expectations are high for better fishing, both salmon and seatrout will become more active with increasing water levels and winds throughout the system.
