Fishing on the Blackwater River

 Blackwater River Cork

Open Season: Salmon & Sea-trout : 1st February – 12th October (C & R from 1st Oct to 12th Oct also fly only)

Brown trout: 15 February to 30 September.

The River Blackwater season is extended from 1st -12th October on a catch and release basis using artifical fly only (bye-law no. CS 314, 2013).

This large and broad river has a lot of fine salmon fishing spread among many private and club fisheries which are all easily accessible. Spring run improving in recent years. The best grilse fishing is towards the end of the season.

The Munster Blackwater rises in Co. Kerry and flows for over 100 miles through Cos. Cork and Waterford to the tide at Cappoquin. It is Ireland’s fourth-longest river and is noted for its big run of salmon. The average size of the brown trout is rather small. Spinning and fly fishing for salmon are the methods allowed on all fisheries, but on some fisheries the use of a worm or shrimp is allowed.

There is a statutory size limit of 7 inches for salmon and trout, and gaffs are not permitted. No fishing is allowed from the Mill Dam at Clondulane or for 30 yards below it.
