Nine fish caught today for just eight rod days.
Today we flew passed the 100 fish for the season mark – 104 is the total to date.
It was a dry bright day here today.
The upper river at Millstreet & Killavullen (where the gauge is at 1.18m) is holding.
Clarity on the upper river is 6-7 feet.
Water temperature at Ballyduff: 11.1ºC / 52.0ºF.
The final total for today was 9 grilse to 7lb. – the Second Best Day of 2015. 3 very fresh fish were caught by mid-day from the upper river in the morning. This evening Kevin Collins (Cork) landed 4 & Kieran Conlon landed two on a micro-tube on the lower river. These 6 were all sea-liced.
We now have 72 fish for the month to date & 104 for the season so far.
Superb for the coming days as more & more fish are running. There was a very good run of fish through our lower beats today. There are also high tides next week peaking at 3.9m from Thursday to Saturday..
No problem for rods & accommodation at the moment.
