The small flood on Tuesday put the river out of order for a couple of days as it became very coloured.

By Friday it was improving and 3 fish were lost on the Lodge beats.

On Saturday June 12), four fish were caught - 3 on spinner & one on fly.

The best (~12lb) was caught & released by Ray Burns on Upper Kilmurry on spinner.

On Sunday, June 13, there were 3 grilse taken on the fly. Clarity is now a good 3 feet.

Seven fish in total for 14 rod days in the last two days.

There has been a significant increase in the number of fish moving through the lower beats since the flood.

I'm also hearing about some grilse & salmon being caught up in the Mallow area.
