Mike O’Shea of the Upper Caragh Fishery in Kerry caught himself the fishery’s first fish of the 2023 season on February 15th last week. In Mike’s own words it was a handy fish of 8lbs fresh of the tide.

The River has been quite low and the the promise of rain last week saw hopes rise for a few fish moving, but it’s been fairly dry since with more settled weather to come.

The Upper Caragh Fishery is a very well-developed fishery. It has fantastic access with stiles and footbridges along the full length of the fishery.  It has well maintained banks and anglers’ huts are provided on many of the beats. The Upper River Caragh can be fished from both boat and bank. Fishing is also available on Cloon Lough and the fishery provides access for anglers with reduced mobility. Boats for hire and guide services are available at the fishery.
