Another 25cm rise on the upper river in the last two days!

Apologies for the lack of reports for the last couple of days but I had no Internet access due to a faulty modem!

Some quite heavy showers yesterday especially in the upper catchment.  The forecast continues mainly dry for the last week of the season.
The upper river at Millstreet has been fluctuating but rising 25cm overall for the last 2 days. Clarity was 2 feet on the upper river in the morning & a foot or so by evening.
The Killavullen gauge is also fluctuating & is at 1.57m at 22.00 tonight.
The picture is similar at Ballyduff with the river rising slightly this evening to 0.69m at 22.00 with clarity ~3 feet.

Water temperature at Ballyduff: steady at 12.8ºC / 55.1ºF.


We have had 46 fish in total for the last 7 days, including the Best Fish of the Season with a 17 pounder on the 18th. & the Best on Fly with a 14 pounder on the 20thJust two fish caught today – but they were fresh.
The total for September so far is 73 & 441 for the season to date.

After this last rather dirty rise the river should fine off from now until the end of the season next Wednesday as the weather should be dry.
There is plenty of water to bring in the run of larger autumn fish so the prospects of sport into the weekend should be good.
Limited for the coming weekend but OK from then to the 30th. at the moment.
