2018 Currane Salmon of the year !
12/10/18 We go straight to the Bungalow and quote of the day from Local Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea, its sums up today’s action in a nut shell. It’s all over, Gale Callum stopped play early and makes the Currane anglers and their rods and reels redundant on this last day of the 2018 Season. So now we will head for my highlights of the 2018 Season, catch of the season goes to Mr. Michael Roden of Waterville and Dublin, who caught a 17 lbs. Salmon on the troll on the 26/2/18. C&R Sea Trout of the Season goes to Cork and Currane angler, Mr. Jerry O’Sullivan, while trolling on the 10/5/18 caught and released a 9 lbs. Sea Trout. In the River department the World Famous Butler Pool takes all the headlines and in simple words it was electrifying and not forgetting the Inny, there was some great action up there at times and I know a few anglers who were well satisfied and for the rest of the season we all know that the Sun took all the headlines and I don’t mean page 3. As we saw when the dry spell came to an end there was good Sea Trout fishing! Charity Salmon of  the Season goes to Local angler Mr. Mike O’Dwyer who caught the first Salmon of the season  on the 20/2/18  and auctionend his 7 lbs. Salmon and rose 1500 Euro for the Palliative care unit at UKH in memory of  local angler and World Champion Currane Honey producer Mr. John Foley RIP.
2018 Charity Currane Salmon of the year 
Well it’s that time of year again to thank all you good people who read the Waterville Fishery report every day, I would also like to thank all the team at www.fisheriesireland.ie and Mr. Paul Burke of the Trout and Salmon magazine and Mr. Tony Gosnell of the Irish Examiner and on that note I look forward to be reporting to you all in 2019 on No Spin No Flys just Facts zone. So  Happy Christmas to you all and I hope you all have a great 2019 Season in all departments.

11/10/18 Talk about the different contrasts of the weather, yesterday it was wild with little to no action and today we had bright sunshine all day with hardly a cloud in sight, with a fresh breeze from the SW with same results. And staying with the weather, tomorrow as we all know is the last day of the 2018 season and it will be a wash out ? because its Batten the hatches me hearty’s as storm Callum approaches the Currane anglers waters. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.4 c.

10/10/18

10/10/18 Waterville fishery was at a standstill on the North side of Lough Currane, we start at the Bungalow and at www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com and also at www.oshealoughcurrane.com as anglers looked with dismay at a strong SE wind blowing into the North Shore. So on that strong note we head straight into the SE waves and head for the South side, there were three boats out and going by the mobile it was all quiet on the SE front in all departments. Now we head for the upper Lakes and Lough Derriana and was just as wild and in the words of Local Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com No good, Strong SE wind blowing and that sums today’s action, you could say it was all wind and staying with the wind,

9/10/18 The Currane Sea Trout fly anglers called it a day even before their casts were tied this morning and for good reason, there was a strong SW wind blowing down the lake and with Storm Callum approaches Ireland fast there is a good chance Currane anglers will have another forced bank holiday in the last few days of the 2018 Season. Wind as all ready stated and good cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.2 c.

8/10/18 Again the Currane Sea Trout fly anglers were let down by the weather and with a strong SW wind blowing down the Lake, that’s not surprising that their fly reels were in a silent mode on this wild day on Lough Currane and if there were any boats out there, again it would only be the odd couple.

Now we head for the Killarney Salmon and Trout Club and their annual visit to Lough Currane and they made a little bit of history by having their first ever Brown Trout competition on Currane and what a cracker of a day they had. So lets go to the facts of the day. 9 Killarney fly anglers headed out of from www.lakelandshouse.com This morning  to the Brown Trout grounds of Currane and it wasn’t long before hell broke out as their reels sang and as lunch was approaching to say the Brown trout were boiling would be an understatement because one angler complaine
d that he had to continue casting and catching and missed his lunch but as he said I wasn’t  browned off with a smile. By the end of their day, the Killarney Salmon and Trout anglers caught 50 Brown Trout between them and added a few nice Sea Trout but sadly Sea Trout didn’t count. Their Brown Trout of the day weighed in at 1 ¾ lbs.

Chaplin knows his lines !
Anglers waiting! 
25/8/18 The Chaplin Festival had a full cast today, but sadly the same couldn’t be said for the Lough Currane anglers, as their lines were slack and as you can see the wild Atlantic Game Fish didn’t perform to their usual standard for the lack of rain and talking of rain as you can see by the photo, Waterville will get a down pour early tomorrow morning. Wind South fresh and bright and sunny but come evening there was good cloud cover.Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 15.3 c.

21/8/18

21/8/18 You can say without any fear of contradiction that the Currane anglers log books were not filled in this day for the lack of action in all departments, but being a optimistic you never know what tomorrow will bring. I will finish today’s notes on sarcasm of the day, I was talking to a renowned gillie this evening and I asked him, any good today, he replied 4!

20/8/18

20/8/18 The Lough Currane Anglers thirst for Wild Game Fish is as strong as ever, but the Lough Currane Wild game Fish were ignoring all their flies and lures for the lack of oxygen in the low waters of Currane as they stay in deeper waters in anticipation for that allusive flood and I’m sure all anglers would second that. Wind W and veered SW at times with good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 18 c.

Talking of rainfall yesterday, Valentia recorded 3.9 mm. Maximum air temperature 18.2.c That sums up today's lack of water and action in all departments. Wind WSW light and overcast and misty.

Rainfall Prediction for Waterville on saturday!
17/8/18 Waterville is busy with the bars flooded with tourists as Currane Anglers head out on to a low Currane and hoping for an allusive Wild Atlantic Game Fish, but to be honest we anglers and fish alike are waiting for the upper Lakes and the Commeragh to burst their banks with fresh water as www.met.ie are forecasting a good down pour for over the  weekend and into next week, how much Waterville will get is another story.  Going by today’s lack of action it won’t be a lot, I will be delighted if I’m wrong.

30/7/18 Lough Currane was on the wild side with a strong WSW wind blowing and one can say without any fear of contradiction that Currane Anglers reels were as dormant as the Currane wild Game Fish. Just for the record there was the odd shower, wind as already stated. Yesterdays weather amount of rainfall 1.8 mm. Maximum air temperature 17.6 c.

Will
29/7/18 Straight to the World Famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie the Butler Pool gets another first in the Salmon department and that honour goes to 14 year old Master Will Lodge of The USA, while on a golfing holiday with his Dad and staying at the Would Famous Butler Arms hotel and at www.butlerarms.com decided to rest the driver and putter and put the fly rod into action today and it wasn’t long before Will caught his first ever salmon on the fly and by all counts his Gillie told me that Will wasn’t satisfied with his fly selection, so fair play to Will, he changed his fly and the rest is history and all I can say is some change of sport and some change of fly and may it be the first of many. Congratulations and well done. Now we head upstream to Lough Currane for todays news, well it was all quiet on the SW front. Wind WNW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfal
 0. 3 mm. Maximum air temperature 16. 9 c.

28/7/18

 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. Wind as already stated with the odd shower. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 4. 6 mm. Maximum air temperature 18.1 c.

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. I asked the Gillie what flies did you catch them on, he swiftly replied they were Salmon and Sea Trout A la carte flies. Well that sums up todays action. Wind W light to fresh with good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 18.3c.

26/7/18 Well it did make some rain last night, not that one would know it, but thankfully the Wild Atlantic Game Fish does, so lets get to the action and its all from one boat, UK Angler Mr. Michael Fish, while fly Fishing with his gillie, caught three Grilse, weights as follows 4 ½ lbs. 5 ½ lbs. 6 ½ lbs. and a fine Sea Trout of 1 ½ lbs. We’re about to call it a day and decided to have a few more casts and as luck would have it, within a couple of casts Michael’s  fly rod was doubled into a fine 6 ½ lbs. Sea Trout and just for the record the 6 ½ lbs. Sea Trout was put back. Wind SW fresh, raining in the morning and cleared by early afternoon. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 20.6 c.

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. So take note! Wind W variable light bright and warm. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.2 mm. Maximum air temperature 18.8.
