Blackwater Lodge & Salmon Fishery News - December 10, 2014

Cork Blackwater River - Freshwater Fishing Report

Prices Unchanged for 2015.
We dropped our prices significantly two years ago to combat the economic climate
and to encourage more anglers to come to the Blackwater.
We are keeping the prices the same for 2015.
Salmon fishing on the renowned Cork Blackwater for between 15 - 80 per day
depending on the season.
Please see our website for details: http://www.ireland-salmon-fishing.net (titled Angling for Salmon on Ireland's Cork Blackwater at Blackwater Lodge and Salmon Fishery)
and don't hesitate to contact us if you would like any further information or would like to make a reservation for the coming season.

Winter spawning
There is an excellent stock of spawning fish on the upper Blackwater according to Fisheries officers.
Interestingly, their behaviour this year is unusual in that they are running to the spawning grounds & spawning immediately
which is rather early especially as we have had a mild winter so far. Perhaps they know more about the coming weather than we do!

2015 Fishing Season
There are no changes in the fishing regulations for the coming season,
apart from the fact that the season will revert to closing on September 30th.*
For the last 3 years, the Blackwater benefited from an extension to the salmon season to October 12.
The Minister has decided not to continue this in 2015.
The quota for the river is 5,752 which is the second highest in the country next to the Moy.
