Bandon River Update

We had some rain fall 2 days ago and the Bandon River started to rise rapidly yesterday afternoon. It rose a foot and half in an hour. This was enough to encourage the fish to run and while fly fishing at the time of water rising I caught a 5 pound and 7.5 pound salmon. Lots of fish jumping the weir in Bandon all today, many of them coloured. With only 26 days left of the season, many anglers are eager to try their luck and catch a salmon before season closes!
