28/2/20 Lough Currane was on the wild side with a strong SW wind blowing, going by the Currane detective agency, one boat did venture out, but no news is good news, so on that note we head back to yesterday’s notes to the apology department and for good reason, I failed miserably in my duties to report that Wexford Angler Mr. Michael McCormack was fishing out of www.thecrescentwaterville.ie and Robert of The Crescent can have the last say and I quote, Good to see our returning guest, who stays with us at the Crescent B+B for catching the first Salmon on the Lough Currane in 2020, again well done Michael.  Wind SW west Strong and overcast. Yesterday’s weather amount of rainfall 1.4 mm. Maximum air temperature 8.6 c.

Michael

27/2/20 Great news at last and I’m sure you all know the Currane ice is broken, so straight to the Wild Atlantic trolling department and the hired out boat department of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com  Wexford and Lough Currane Angler Mr. Michael McCormack, caught a cracker of a 14 lbs, Salmon on the troll, so congratulations to Michael for catching the first Lough Currane Salmon of 2020 and may it be the first of many. Staying in the trolling department and renowned Cahersiveen and Currane Angler Mr. Stephen Donnelly, caught a fine 8 lbs. Salmon with his good friend Mike.

25/2/20

25/2/20 Lough Currane anglers were at a standstill with a strong WNW wind blowing followed by violent gusts with the heavy wintery showers, plus a mixture of hale, sleet and snow this morning and much of the same in the afternoon but not so violent. That sums up today’s lack of action in the Wild Atlantic Salmon and Sea Trout department. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 11.0 mm. Maximum air temperature 11.7 c.

24/2/20


24/2/20 There were four boats manipulating this day and sadly the Currane anglers’ reels were all too quiet for their liking on all fronts, that sums up today’s action. In scoring terms, you could say Currane anglers 0 the Currane Wild Atlantic Salmon won. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 6.9 mm. Maximum air temperature 12. 2 c.

21/2/20

21/2/20 Lough Currane Anglers headed straight for the high stool for a large whisky in the jar, as SW gales hammer Lough Currane. Those are the facts of the day and all I can say to you all you readers are, you can’t blame the Currane anglers and you certainly can’t blame the Salmon. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 7.1 mm. Maximum air temperature 10. 3 c.

20/2/20 A few boats did venture out today but all drew blanks, but to be fair to the Currane anglers there was a strong NW Wind blowing followed by wintery showers, but it was great to see some action from the Currane Anglers, it’s a pity one can’t say the same for the Salmon. But to be fair Lough Currane is high after all the rain in the last two weeks. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 13.7 mm. Maximum air temperature 10. 8 c.

16/2/20


16/2/20 Dennis the Menace was in full control of the Currane anglers again today and with strong WSW gales blowing down the lake, so that’s not surprising the Currane anglers’ lines were slack. Staying with the weather today, overcast with heavy rain and hail showers. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 22. 2 mm. Maximum air temperature 11.4c. I will end today’s notes on an optimistic note and weather permitting, I can without any fear of contradiction say there will be a Salmon caught this week and the one can say the ice is truly broken.

13/2/20 Lough Currane was all quiet on all fronts.

12/2/20 As storm Ciara headed across the Irish Sea, one boat did head out today in a fresh wind from the West but sadly all was quiet on the SW front but to be fair to the lonesome Angler, Lough Currane has been turned over and over like a pancake in the last few days and it’s been reported that Storm Dennis will hit Ireland this weekend.
