The Highs & Lows of Salmon Fishing
Highest Daily Catch
Today we recorded the Best Day of the 2014 Season so far with 4 fish to 14lb. for 12 rod days.
Low(er) Water & High Prospects
Judging by the catches today
& the ever-improving condition of the river
prospects for the coming week & into
the Easter weekend are very high!
The river is at it's lowest level since the season opened - down to 0.62m this evening 14th.
There are also high tides with the full moon
for the second half of the week.
Not spring tides, but reaching 3.8m.
The water clarity today was about 5 feet.
The water temperature was 9.5ºC or 49.1ºF.
There is an excellent head of spring fish especially in the upper river as they have had high water thus far to move through.
I already know of springers that have been caught as far upriver as Lombardstown.
First Grilse reported
The first grilse have been taken already - and very far up the river.
Two were reported caught on Saturday 3 miles below Millstreet - which is 60 miles above the tide!
We have availability of accommodation & fishing in the coming weeks.
I will of course continue to update the river conditions daily.
