Water level peaks for second time in less than 48 hours.……………

Great prospects for sport for the last fortnight of the season.
Plenty of rain in the catchment for the last 24 hours & this will continue until late evening. It should then be dry from tomorrow to the end of the week albeit unsettled.

The upper river at Millstreet has risen 1.90m since 14.00 yesterday & looks to be about to peak at 14.30 today.

The Killavullen gauge started to rise again at 16.30 yesterday & is up 1.60m to 3.35m at 14.30 today.

The Funcheon & Araglen tributaries were both very high & dirty at 09.00 this morning.

The Ballyduff gauge started to rise at nightfall last night & is 1.20m to 1.90m by 14.30 today & still rising.

Water temperature at Ballyduff: 13.1ºC / 55.5ºF & steady.


There are no rods out on the river at all today. There were two grilse caught yesterday on the very top beat just below Mallow as the level dropped until early afternoon on the upper river.
Catch for September so far is 27 & 395 for the season to date.

The river may barely be spinnable tomorrow in high water spots.
This flood should bring in the run of larger autumn fish so the prospects of sport in the coming week should be excellent. 
It combines with tides peaking at 3.8m at Youghal from today until Wednesday this week.

No problem for rods & accommodation at the moment.
