Fishing News:  From Blackwater Lodge fishery; Since late October a lot of rain has fallen, and the river is considerably higher than it was for most of the season. Huge numbers of fish are now coming into the Blackwater. The fish counter at Clondulane weir reports 7,500 salmon running through in the8 days from October 27th.
The counter only counts a small proportion of the fish that are actually running through as many go directly over the weir rather than up the fish-pass on which it is situated. Most of these are earlier season fish which should anyway have run up earlier in the summer. Many of the prolific autumn salmon run are destined to spawn in the 12 miles or so of the lower river between the tidal limit just below Lismore & Clondulane, so these would not be counted anyway.
All this bodes well for the future of salmon fishing on the Blackwater, and this, together with the recession busting incentives we have planned for 2011 will hopefully ensure that many more anglers will be able to enjoy the peace, tranquility and superb salmon fishing provided by the Cork Blackwater.
