The river is fining off well to good fly order……..

Dry again for the last 24 hours. The forecast remains for dry weather for the 6 days 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 continues to drop steadily.

The Killavullen gauge is also falling slowly & steadily to 1.42m at 22.00. Clarity ~3-4 feet & peaty.

The Ballyduff gauge is down to 0.53 at 22.30. Clarity 3-4 feet.

Water temperature at Ballyduff: 12.7ºC / 54.9ºF.


Just 2 fish today, but some larger fresh fish moving through the lower beats.
The total for September so far is 86 & 454 for the season to date.

The upper river is falling slowly & steadily 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.
