15/2/19 Sadly again the Currane anglers were at a standstill as the weather takes all the headlines as strong winds from the South and SW take control of the Currane anglers and waters this day. On an optimistic note, as from tomorrow, as my Father would say, we are into the deadly week of the Salmon and there is no argument to that because you will see some action in all departments !! Weather permitting, so watch this space. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 12.8 c.

Waterville and Kerry has Time for every one!
14/2/19 The Currane anglers were at a standstill as all Salmon stations were closed, thanks to a strong SSE wind as it took control over the Currane waters. Now we go back in time and here is a message to all you anglers, be it Game or Sea fishing, so if your timing is off, the Waterville Swordfish Sundial will solve your problem especially after a few Jars! Wind as already stated, yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 11.3 c.

13/2/19 You’ve heard of the lonesome Cowboy, well today local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy and of www.fishingwithdom.com was complaining he felt like the lonesome Currane Angler fishing out on his own on the Currane prairie in a wild SW wind, as the Currane waves crashed into his bow, Dominic’s reels were silent except for a few interruptions of the odd Kelt taking, or to be more precise 3 strikes! Wind as already stated and overcast. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 5.9. mm. Maximum air temperature 11.8 c.

Staying in the Kelt department, yesterday, proprietor of www.thecrescentwaterville.ie/ Mr. Robert Elson   caught 5 Kelts on the troll, while fishing with his good friend and local angler Mr. Brod O’Sullivan.

11/2/19

11/2/19 All quiet on the SW front and talking of the SW that’s exactly where the wind was coming from, plus there was reasonable cloud cover, but sadly the Currane anglers didn’t stimulate their flies or lures enough to procure a Wild Atlantic Salmon, bur remember Currane anglers especially fly Anglers its coming up to the middle of the month so keep on line or even better catch a Wild Lough Currane on a fly line. Weather as already stated, yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 4. 5 mm. Maximum air temperature 8.6 mm.

6/2/19

All Welcome 
6/2/19 Again its all strong wind from the SW, admittedly one boat did venture out and by all accounts the Currane angler recorded a blank log book! Now on a serious note and to all you Currane anglers you should take note and for good reason. Why because the Waterville Community First Responders are having a Family open Day on CPR and all Currane anglers should come because it could be your friend or you one day, so if asked what did you catch today ? I caught noting, but thank God I learnt CPR because I Saved a Life! Today’s weather as already stated. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 17.1 mm. Maximum air temperature 12.1 c.

5/2/19

5/2/19 Again the weather takes all the headlines as a strong SW wind  hits Lough Currane and followed with heavy rain, so as you can imagine all the Currane anglers could do was look at the waves hitting the shoreline, come afternoon the wind dropped. One Currane angler did head out and that was the one and only Local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy and of www.fishingwithdom.com and Dominic reported that he caught 3 Kelts on the troll and that raps up today’s action, but just one point of order there was a good flood today, so to all you Salmon fly anglers take note and let the battle commence in the premier league of Currane fly Anglers. Today’s weather as already stated. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.0 maximum air temperature 10.6 mm

3/2/19

3/2/19 The weather takes all the headlines as a strong SW wind makes the Currane anglers redundant and in the words of one Gillie it’s a day for the high stool and reminisce and what could have been! On that note that raps up this weeks action when the Currane ice was broken and now it’s the battle of the first Salmon caught on the fly. Wind as already stated and overcast with rain in the late afternoon, yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 2.2 mm, maximum air temperature 7.3 c.

2/2/19

The cards are on the table at the Waterville Inn
2/2/19 Going by today’s performances by the Currane Anglers they were still celebrating the first Salmon of 2019 and the reason I come to this conclusion is because local angler Mr. Mike O’Dwyer went playing Cards last night and by all accounts he wouldn’t lay his cards on the table on what lure he caught his Salmon on, even as the beer flowed at the Waterville Inn, all I can say is Mr. Paddy Carey R.I.P would have been disappointed with today’s performance but delighted with the celebrations and I can say Paddy was some Gillie in all departments of Salmon and Sea Trout fishing and that’s why we have this great cup in memory on this great Gillie!! Wind NNE light and variable with reasonable cloud cover with showers. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 4.8 c.

1/2/19

1/2/19 At last the Lough Currane code is broken and yes you have it, Local Angler Mr. Michael O’Dwyer caught a cracker of 10 lbs. Salmon on the troll and in his own words in a text message, got him! So congratulations to Mike in breaking the Currane code and on that note Mike said lets head for the Waterville Inn and collect the Paddy Carey Memorial Cup and I can tell you the Landlord of the Waterville Inn Mr. Damian Duff was ready and waiting to present the Cup to Mike and the party is in full swing by now!! Weather, bright sunshine all day and a light NE wind. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 21.5 mm. Maximum air temperature 6.3 c, min air temperature 2. 6 c.

31/1/19

31/1/19 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front on this last day of January and still we Currane anglers haven’t broken the Wild Atlantic Salmon code of  I’ve Got him, but I can say without any fear of contradiction the Currane anglers and their faces are red and it ain’t the cold weather!! Wind NE light and variable with good cloud cover followed by a few showers. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 3.8 mm. Maximum air temperature 6.9 c.

30/1/19 The Lough Currane anglers are still waiting to break the Currane ice of the mighty elusive Wild Atlantic Salmon and talking of ice it was dam cold out there on the Lake today and that’s not surprising as there was a light wind from the NE followed by hail, sleet and snow and all the Currane anglers caught for their efforts were a few Kelts, all caught on the troll. Today’s weather as already stated. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 5.9 mm. Maximum air temperature 6.3 c.

29/1/19

Chill of the day!!
29/1/19 All the Lough Currane anglers caught today was a cold, as the Big freeze hit Lough Currane, just for the record at the top of Coomakista it was 2 c. at 3.37 pm, so one can say that the Currane anglers were exonerated for the lack of action in all departments. Wind West then veered NW light with heavy hail showers and snow falls on high ground. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 4.5 mm. Maximum air temperature 9.1 c.

28/1/19

28/1/19 Today on Lough Currane there was a nice but cold wind from the NW plus the odd shower which I might add made for good fishing especially in the trolling department but sadly the Wild Atlantic Salmon would beg to differ as the Lough Currane anglers drew a blank in all departments, so on that negative note we will head over to the Kerry Salmon detective agency, on a positive note, it was brought to my attention that on the Killarney Flesk over the weekend there were a few Salmon caught of which the biggest was 12 lbs. All I can say is come on Currane Anglers and pull your finger out !! Wind and weather as already stated, yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 6.9 mm, maximum air temperature 9.5 c.

27/1/19

 27/1/19 Lough Currane was calmer this day after yesterdays and last nights storm and one could say the Lough Currane waters got a good shake up, so it wasn’t surprising the Currane anglers were counting their blank days and not counting their fish this day. Wind NW light and overcast with heavy showers. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 10.0 mm, maximum air temperature 10.7 c.                     

Saturday, January 26, 2019

26/1/19 The Currane Salmon anglers were at a stand still today and for good reason because there was a strong SW wind blowing across the lake. As I write today’s notes its wild out there and in North Kerry this evening 5000 homes were cut off from the electricity, so if I don’t hurry and put today’s notes up on the net we may be out for more than 5 minutes. Wind as already stated and overcast with heavy showers. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.9 mm, maximum air temperature 11.1 C. Just for the record we are on a yellow alert this evening and tomorrow.

25/1/19

25/1/19 The Currane anglers were chopping and changing their flies and lures in anticipation of the first and at present very elusive Wild Atlantic Salmon and as light turned to darkness, the Currane anglers called it a day and headed for a well deserved liquid libation and in the words of one Angler 9 days and counting!! Wind W light and overcast and rain this evening. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 1.0 mm maximum air temperature 12.1 c.

Thursday, January 24, 2019

24/1/19

24/1/19 There were a few boats out manipulating their flies and lures and trying their best to stimulate a Wild Atlantic Salmon, but sadly we Currane anglers and readers of Salmon and Sea Trout are still waiting for the Currane ice to be broken.

21/1/19

21/1/19 Lough Currane anglers were left redundant today as a strong SW blew across Lough Currane and hammered into the North Shore and followed by heavy rain at times. Just for the record the Irish Meteorological Service has put Ireland on a Yellow alert as you can see clicking this link https://www.met.ie/warnings and that sums up today’s facts. Wind as already stated, yesterdays weather amount of rainfall, 1.9 mm. Maximum air temperature 9.1 c.

Friday, January 18, 2019

18/1/19

18/1/19 A few boats were out manipulating their lures and flies and with a nice SW wind blowing then veered NW later in the afternoon, its not surprising that one boat was casting their flies into renowned Currane Salmon lies, but sadly there was no response from the Currane Wild Atlantic Salmon, be it on flies or lures. Wind as already stated with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, Valentia recorded 14.6 mm of rainfall.
