The river has stayed high all week. I know of only 4 or 5 fish landed and suspect most new arrivals headed hard upstream as fish were seen jumping the weirs. Of particular interest was Paul McQuins’ fish off the Kilbride beat on the 23rd reportedly the first landed since the beat reopened after a 7 year closure. A number of fish have been lost on beats above Bunclody and higher upstream. A good double figure fish was lost after 25 minutes on a lower beat on Thursday. We need a few days stable lower water to see what stock is in the river.
