Spring Fishing Hots Up!   Best Day & Best Fish of the Season so far!

After a quiet spell due mainly to high water & lack of rods fishing, there was a considerable pickup on Sunday April 22nd.
It turned out to be the Best Day of the Season so far,
& also produced the Biggest Fish of the Season.

John McNulty (who was fishing as part of our Open Weekend) caught a 15 pounder on spinner on Woodstream on the upper river,
about 20 miles upstream from the Lodge.
A couple of miles further upstream, syndicate rod David Walsh (Mallow) caught his very
first ever spring salmon weighing 6lb.
He switched to a single barbless hooked spinner & then promptly caught & released a second fish
which he estimated between 9-9˝lb.

Yet more rain in the upper catchment on Monday which brought the river up once again overnight,
but by Tuesday morning it was already falling back. Clarity is quite good at 2˝-3 feet.

With the forecast now mainly dry for the coming week, prospects of sport are looking superb as there is now
obviously a good head of springers
in the system & the river is coming back towards good conditions.
