Best Catch of One Beat in a Day for 2015 – 8 fish to 3 rods!

Nine fish in total for the day including two First Ever Salmon.

Dry for the last 24 hours. The forecast is now for dry weather for the last week of the season. High pressure builds over Ireland through the weekend & into next week & winds will be predominantly south westerly.

The upper river at Millstreet is dropping quite rapidly since 20.00 yesterday – down 21cm already.

The Killavullen gauge is also falling after peaking at 1.60m at 05.00 this morning. It’s down to 1.46m at 22.00.  Clarity ~2½ feet & peaty.

The Ballyduff gauge peaked at 09.00 this morning at 0.68m. It’s down to 0.60m at 22.00 & peaty.

Water temperature at Ballyduff: 12.7ºC / 54.9ºF.


Final total was four fish caught yesterday – two were fresh.
Today saw the Best Catch from One Beat in One day for 2015. Three rods landed & released eight fish on one of our upper beats. One was a First Ever Salmon for Doug Clayton (UK). They saw a very large number of fish moving during the day. The total catch for the day was nine, including another First Ever Salmon of 9lb.for Casey Simons (USA) on fly.
The total for September so far is 84 & 452 for the season to date.

The upper river is falling quickly after this last fresh & should fine off from now until the end of the season next Wednesday as the weather should be dry.
There should be plenty of water to bring in the run of larger autumn fish so the prospects of sport into the weekend should be excellent.

Limited for the coming weekend but OK from then to the 30th. at the moment.
