The upper river is dropping steadily & the forecast is dry.

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 20cm already.

The Killavullen gauge is also falling after peaking at 1.60m at 05.00 this morning. It’s down to 1.53m at 11.00. Clarity ~2½ feet & very peaty.
The Ballyduff gauge peaked at 09.00 this morning at 0.68m. It’s down to 0.66m at 12.00 & also very peaty.

Water temperature at Ballyduff: 12.7ºC / 54.9ºF.


Final total was three fish caught yesterday – two were fresh.
We have had 47 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 20th.
The total for September so far is 74 & 442 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 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.
