July Grilse run picks up!

Grilse run gives a major improvement!



July had been ticking along quite steadily, with fish caught most days.
There were only 4 blank days which were all at the beginning of the month.
The last flood on July 18th. got the grilse moving in good numbers,
and we have seen good runs of fish going through both the lower & upper beats.
The river has fined off beautifully with clarity now about 4 feet.

So far for July, 54 fish to 14lb have been caught.
Of these, 24 have been caught in the last 3 days where the daily count is 10, 5 & 8 fish respectively.
Fly, spinner & worm have all caught almost exactly the same number of fish.

The 20th was the Best Day of the Season.
On the 21st., 5 to 10lb. were caught – and no less than 3 were First Ever salmon.
Husband & wife Jake & Jess Hiltz (USA) both caught their first guided by Glenda on the upper river,
& Marino Bellini (Italy) took his first also on the upper river.

Yesterday (22nd.) nine were taken (7 grilse & salmon of 10 & 11½lb.) including another First Ever,
with more now being caught on the lower river  as it fines off.

This picture says it all! Seven year old Tommy Quinlivan with his First Ever Salmon!
4lb. sea-liced. Taken on worms on the Island Stream on Lower Kilmurry

With the forecast dry for the coming week, prospects for sport are superb!
Rods and accommodation are available for the coming weeks.

  • (So why not get the edges you never imagined and
    find out more about my unique bait design and bait making carp fishing secrets bibles – at Baitbigfish.
    By attracting fish, and getting them to strike, you’re well
    on your way to becoming a better fisherman.
    In my early days as an angler this was achieved by the
    use of a bait catapult, however, you can now find radio controlled bait boats that enable you to position
    your ground bait very accurately in the water.
