Current Conditions
A couple of small floods have really got things moving! The river is now fining off into perfect order,
& some excellent catches have been recorded in the last one & a half weeks.
After yet more rain, the upper river rose 20cm @ Millstreet & 10cm @ Kanturk last night but it is now falling again.
The lower river is holding it’s level today (Thursday).  The clarity is very good @ ~ 4
feet throughout.

Availability

Rods are available for the last week of the season as are
ensuite B&B rooms & some self-catering accommodation.

Best Day & Best Fish this year!
On September 20th., twenty-two fish to 16.3lb were landed. Seven were double figure fish & five were 13lb. or more.
Two upper beats recorded 6 fish each, including a couple of 10 pounders. All but one were released.
Local rod Mick Kennedy landed six fish to over 16lb.
On the lower river where clarity was better at ~4 feet, seven fish to 8lb. were caught.
One rod had 3 on fly, and another one had one on spinner & landed another & lost 2 all on fly as well.
