2/7/17

2/7/17 All the Sea Trout fly fishing headlines come from the Bungalow, Dublin angler Mr. Enrico Fantasia, caught and released another fine 2 ½ lbs. Sea Trout, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of  www.oshealoughcurrane.com and in Neil’s hired out boat department a guest caught two Juniors, which were sportingly put back. Now to the apology department and for good reason and I can tell you that local Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com gave me a right diplomatic thrashing for not mentioning that all the catches yesterday out of the Bungalow were catch and release and Dublin angler Mr. Enrico and  Kenmare angler Mr. Mike Hennessey weren’t amused either and can you blame them and no you can’t and as they say I’m guilty as charged, but the record has been put straight. Wind West light to fresh with good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfasll 2.0mm. Maximum air temperature 15.4c.

  2. Does it matter? The issue is the collapse of the sea trout run. I spoke with you about this last weekend Vincent and you were not minded to accept that there is a collapse. The previoous poster (post removed?) agrees with me and many others who fish the lake regularly. Many boats lie idle and their owners are not coming to Currane any more. Sea trout smolt have returned with sea lice three years in a row now. This is now a trolling lake unless you have someone on the oars and there is a simple explanation. The volume of sea trout is no longer there to occupy known drifts. The counter returns clearly indicate a dramatic fall off.

  5. The sea lice issue is the dominant issue regarding Lough Currane. It is evident since 2011 (Opening of two farms) that the trout stock has collapsed and with no sign of a changed circumstance regarding the farms in Kenmare Bay the problem will continue to increase in effect. The sheer volume of farmed fish and the effect of warming temps makes the lice problem increasingly serious. There will be no solution unless people act in unison and stop protecting a non existent tourism product. Sea Trout will not return to anything approaching sustainability until issues are sorted which invariably must see the industry move to closed containment.The production model in Kenmare Bay leaves nothing but extinction on the horizon. This is both environmentally damaging but also morally unacceptable and cannot continue. Ireland has a poor relationship with the environment and aquaculture is only another poor decision to allow a few to prosper while damaging the economic and cultural heritage of this area. There are advances in aquaculture to protect wild fish but we need to strongly promote these models to politicians. As long as people just bury their heads in the sand the problem will persist.
