8/2/16 As anglers hit the high stool, storm Imogen hits Waterville. So you don’t  have to be a rocket scientist to know there was no fishing today and as you can see by the photos taken by Mr. Jonathan Walsh of Waterville the Sea front got a hammering, now its operation clean up Waterville.
In Calmer days

7/2/16 Again the weather takes all the headlines , storm WSW wind was the talk of the day and in the words  of  renowned local  Gillie  Mr. Mike  O ' Dwyer , Lough Currane was only fit for ducks and the seagulls.

6/2/16 Now all the news  from Lough Currane, well there isn't any and for good reason, Currane was at a standstill with a strong SW blowing and heavy showers on and off all day and just for the record one could have fished the South Side, if there were any boats out they didn't report  the day's  manipulating .

At the end of the Day
Noel just after he caught his Noble Salmon
5/2/16 Lough Currane records its second Salmon today and what a cracker of a Salmon, weighing in at 12 lbs. Caught on the troll this afternoon by renowned Kildare and Waterville angler Mr. Noel Clancy and for the rest of the fishing community, No Comment.
Flat calm for most of the day, with heavy rain this morning.  


4/2/16  All my Noble anglers failed miserably in their duties in all departments. Wind WNW light and overcast with showers. Now a special note from the Inland fisheries and I quote, (Anglers are reminded to handle kelts carefully and record them in your log book–IFI)

3/2/16 The only bit of action reported was in the Kelt department and in his own words, local Gillie Mr. Sion Brain of caught 3 Kelts (Super) was in the fighting chair. His first day fishing with me this year. Weather, calm and overcast in the afternoon.

How do I get to my Boat
With great Difficulty 
Lock Down
2/2/16 All Quiet on the SW front after storm Henry, so on that note we head down stream to the Bog and Fort Knox. The reason I say this is because Anglers can’t get to their boats or put their boats in, reason being its all been fenced off. The only fear I would have, if a Boat came in off the lake in the dark there would be no way out and on a safety point of view they should leave the main pathway open. Wind West fresh with showers.

No Path to my Noble Salmon 

Where there is a Will there is a way

Out of Fort Knox
