Lodge proprietor Ian Powell caught this 6.2 pounder on spinner on the Jole on Lower Kilmurry.


February:  5 fish caught in total, all between February 3-14 for only 30 rod days.

Joint Best February total since 2004 & joint Second Best total since 1994.


March 3: First on fly & Biggest of Season caught by Shane Kinsella (Wicklow) – ~12lb.

on a 1 1/2″ aluminium Garry Dog tube on sink tip line.

March 4:  First off the upper river a 7 pounder on spinner for Tom Donovan at Castletownroche.

Looking very good for the coming week with a small (12cm) fresh on the river but very good clarity.

Dry forecast for the week so conditions should stabilise.
