15/8/18 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front and at these Water levels that’s not surprising and staying in the water level department, it did make a small amount of rain early this morning going by the Finglas River, so it will be interesting will it have any effect, if any on the Wild Butler Pool or Lough Currane Game Fish. Wind SW fresh and overcast with misty rain. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17.6.

13/8/18  Low Pressure hits Waterville with light misty rain and overcast all day.

12/8/18 Nice Fishing conditions first thing this morning after a small bit of rain yesterday, but come midday the clouds vanished and the sun blazed down on the Currane anglers and I can tell you by the end of their day the Currane anglers were well browned off with the lack of action.

Wind W light. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 18.6 c.

11/8/18 The Lough Currane anglers were hoping for some rain today, well you can say at least they got their heads wet with light misty rain throughout the day, sadly the rain was not enough to activate my Noble Wild Atlantic Game fish, so one can say without any fear of contradiction, we can finish today’s notes on a low water, if you get my drift. Talking of low waters,  here is a great video by Mr. Vincent Donnelly,  Paradise! Wind SE and veered SW light to fresh and overcast all day. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17.1 c

10/8/18 The wind was in the West this day and my Noble  Currane anglers failed to record a Game fish to their name but in defence of the Currane Anglers I  have to confess it's the weather that is making we anglers frustrated as well as the fish for the lack water in the Waterville system.

3/8/18 Straight to the backdate department and catch of the week so far, yesterday Australian Angler Mr. John Purey, while fly fishing with his Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com caught a fine 7 lbs.

Now back to today and Lough Currane anglers thought they were in luck first thing this morning with good cloud cover plus a nice light breeze from the West. Sadly I can tell you it wasn’t long before they were disappointed because come midday it was bright and sunny, at least the Currane anglers battled it out to evening but to no avail and considering Lough Currane is still very low they deserve a medal.

Sea Trout while fly-fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com just for the record there were a few boats manipulating in all departments this day after yesterdays small amount of rainfall and sadly I haven’t got accurate data in this department, sorry for this, but I can tell you the total amount of rainfall for Kerry was 18.mm.

Tuesday, July 31, 2018

31/7/18

31/7/18 Lough Currane anglers still thirsty for fish and dehydrated with lack of Natural Currane Water, so you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to what the poor wild Atlantic Game fish feels like and that sums up this Months manipulations. Wind Strong SW with reasonable cloud cover followed by the odd shower. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 2.0 mm. Maximum air temperature 17.4 c.

 28/7/18 In the words of one Gillie, Lough Currane was hard out there today with a strong WNW wind blowing and nothing doing. They say self praise is no recommendation, well I would beg to differ because my words of wisdom came into reality and if one back dates to the 24/7/18 you will get my drift.

27/7/18

27/7/18 Again UK angler Mr. Michael Fish and his Gillie take all the fly fishing headlines, so straight to the fly line and reel in today’s facts, Well Michael wasn’t fly fishing long before his fly rod doubled with a fine 4 lbs, Salmon / Grilse and then topped that with a fine 5 lbs. Salmon / Grise followed by a cracker of an 8lbs. Salmon and to finish their marvellous fly fishing this day with a Junior and topped it again with a fine 4 lbs. Sea Trout.

Tuesday, July 24, 2018

24/7/18

24/7/18 All quiet on the SW front and you could say the Anglers enthusiasm is wilting and I just hear the response from the Wild Atlantic Game Fish, you can sing that Lough Currane Anglers! its not often that Fish and Angler agree, but there is light at the end of river? www.met.ie/#forecasts  is forecasting a little rainfall and as one great Gillie Mr. Jack O’Sullivan RIP once said to me, there was enough rain to activate the Salmon and I politely said Jack that’s rubbish, that down fall wouldn’t wet your head! well the rest is history because the next day Jack and Father Eric Cantillon RIP caught 16 Salmon in a mornings fishing, all caught on the fly.

Kerry
Only Duck fly on the pool today
18/7/18 Straight to the weather and the order of the day was bright sunshine and very warm and with all that there was at least 3 boats manipulating their lures, all they had to report at the end of their day was a Suntan. On the early shift it was reported that an angler fishing on his own had a good crack from a Salmon while trolling but sadly the salmon won the day and that sums up today’s action. Now to the apology department and yes I failed miserably in my duties, yesterday I failed to check my email because of this I failed to report that Northern Ireland angler Mr. Andy Wishart’s daughter, Kerry caught her first Salmon while trolling with her Dad and may it be the first of many and again sorry for not putting it in yesterdays notes. Wind calm this morning and come afternoon there was a nice breeze from the NW. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.3 mm. Maximum air temperature 18.8 c.

15/7/18 Lough Currane Anglers were more enthusiastic this day after a light sprinkle of rainfall, but I can tell you by the end of their day, their enthusiasm had sunk to a low like the waters of Currane, so a full pint of beer was order of the day after their hard efforts, need I say more. Total amount of rainfall for kerry was 3mm, maximum air temperature 18.3.

12/7/18

12/7/18 Currane Anglers could only look at a flat calm Currane today so one could say the fly anglers were made redundant and even if the wind had got up they would need to ask the patron St. of fishing St. Peter to intervene and the same goes for the anglers that manipulates on the troll, but I will say one thing, dry spell or not Lough Currane has a great reputation for proving otherwise when conditions are hard. Wind no comment. Yesterdays weather maximum air temperature 22.5c.

11/7/18

Sun Set in Waterville
11/7/18 England may be disappointed they lost their semi final of the World Cup but not as half as much as we Currane anglers because we didn’t even get a strike, so one can say it was a disappointing day all round. Wind was light W and variable. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 21.2 c. 

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

10/7/18

The Currane anglers were the only ones that got crisped and fried today as the Wild Atlantic Game Fish stayed dormant in the deep waters of Currane preserving their oxygen. Wind NW light, reasonable cloud cover in the morning and bright sunshine in the afternoon. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 20.5c.

Jim's, Salmon gets the chance to fight another day! 
Listowel, picure by Robert  Edmonds
Kenmare picture by
Jerry O'Sullivan of Radio Kerry
8/7/18 Lough Currane maybe low but this didn’t deter UK angler Mr. Jim Marriot from catching a fine Salmon on the fly, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com  and as you can see by the photo it was put back to fight another day. Now back to the dry weather beleave it or not there is stll fresh water flowing into Currane as you can see by the video, mind you Kerry anglers in Listowel are bone dry and the same goes for the Kenmare anglers who are also looking at a dry river, so we Currane anglers have no excuse, on that sarcastic note I have to say easier said than done. Wind NW light variable and sunny. Yesterdeays weather,maximum air temperature 20. 8c. Now last but not least went out to Dooleys Restaurant this evening  and we had a Brilliant meal and to say first class would be a understatement and thanks Dooleys for a great evening.

7/7/18 The Currane anglers sweated out again this warm day, but sadly their sweat didn’t rise the lake and there was no rise out of the Wild Atlantic Game Fish either. Wind W light with reasonable cloud cover at times. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 20.0c. 

Friday, July 6, 2018

6/7/18

19.3c. 6/7/18 Believe it or believe it not there was light misty rain in Waterville this morning so light infact it will be interesting to see did it register,  in meteorological language when it is so light, its a trace and I can tell you going by my mobile phone there was no trace of action on Lough Currane today in the Wild Atlantic game fishing department and with the water levels being so low it’s not surprising. Wind W light with reasonable cloud cover and very warm this afternoon, yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 19.6c. Going back to low water levels the Inland Fisheries have a special message for river  anglers and I quote. Inland Fisheries Ireland is appealing to anglers and fishery managers to voluntarily cease salmon angling on catch and release rivers with immediate effect due to high water temperatures and the current drought conditions. The agency also advises for conservation purposes on open rivers, anglers should cease angling once their daily bag limit is reached
                                                       

Thursday, July 5, 2018

5/7/18

 5/7/18 The Currane Anglers had a cooler day but sadly the wild Atlantic Salmon are staying in a dormant mode. On the Sea Trout front it was reported to me that one boat caught and released one Junior, I take it, it was caught on the fly, but I could be jumping to the wrong conclusion and I’m sure I will soon be corrected if I  have failed miserably in my duties. Wind West light with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 19.3c. 

Wednesday, July 4, 2018

4/7/18

4/7/18 This 4th of July was the hottest day since the American independence, that might be a slight exaggeration, but if you were an angler on Lough Currane today it would feel like it especially if one landed on one of the islands at lunchtime, so God only knows what the fish feel like, very lethargic one would think, plus one must take into consideration also the lake is very low and to catch fish in theses conditions you can take your hat off in celebration and as you all have seen he can be caught if your out there, mind its getting harder. Wind NW light to fresh and bright and sunny all day. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 23.9c.

Wind W light and very warm and in the shade about 26c ? taken with an old thermometer, with hazy sunshine. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 25.4c.

9/6/18

9/6/18 The Lough Currane anglers are digging into their low water fly boxes and sadly today they failed but not miserably and the same goes for the Currane Lure men, and you don’t have to be a meteorological scientist to know that the Currane Anglers are in badly need of Water as they headed for nearest watering hole this evening after their good sun tanning today. Wind W light and very sunny and warm is an understatement. Yesterdays Weather, maximum air temperature 21.9c.

8/6/18

8/6/18 The Lough Currane Salmon and Sea Trout anglers were as quiet as each other this day and in the words of one Cork angler who caught a fine Brown Trout just under 2 lbs.  he said to me, as I sportingly put it back, I said to myself its healthy for the fish but this hot weather isn’t  fit for man or beast and I replied its not much good Fishing either and a good flood wouldn’t do any harm. On a lighter note I will leave you in the hands of Vincent Donnelly, the talented  Fisherman and Artist extraordinaire. Wind light NW very bright and hot. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 19.4c.

7/6/18

7/6/18 Heat waves still in control of the Waterville Fishery which isn’t surprising with the sun blazing down on Currane and very thundery at times so its not surprising that the Currane Anglers are spending more money on suntan lotion and bottles of water than they are on flies and lours. Wind W light and very warm. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17.8c.     

Wednesday, June 6, 2018

6/6/18

Mariet and William RIP
5/6/18 Lough Currane is mourning this day and for good reason and its with great sadness that I have to tell you that renowned Salmon and Sea Trout Angler, Mr. William Timmermans, RIP, of Waterville and Holland sadly past away yesterday. On Behalf of all the Waterville Fishery and all the good people of Waterville and Glencar and all of Co. Kerry I would like to send our Sincere Sympathies to his good Wife, Mrs. Mariet Timmermans and all their Family and friends. Well William you may be gone and you certainly won’t be forgotten and for good reason, you fished the Waterville Fishery for well over fifty years and I believe William caught his first Salmon on the troll going by the Holly Island and in that fifty years plus of fishing the Waterville Fishery, William caught a good many more and on that note I will say, William RIP.
