Thread: Gweebara

  1. #1

    Default Gweebara

    The rain came too late for me but I fished for a couple of hours just on the off-chance.......... it wasn't to be! A stunning little river and I wish I'd had the time to do it justice.

    A grand total of one grilse landed for a hard weeks' fishing. Rose 5 on the first day but didn't connect with any. Had a mad lunge at a monkey on the Friday and that was about it............ Very hot,bright and humid weather for the first few days, then dull and humid, then flooded off the Mourne, followed by humid with severe midges and, finally, perfect conditions on the Gweebara but a ferry to catch.
    Maybe next time?

    Hi Donnie, excuse my ignorance, but where is this river. Looks nice.

    County Donegal. I had read about it and waited all week for rain but, as I said, it came too late. Tried the hitch tube as well but didn't see a fish in the few hours I was there. Someone had taken one recently though - pile of scales on the bank below the falls. The nets (both legal and otherwise) were doing well earlier in the week at the estuary and I had seen quite a few good sized fish showing below the bridge at Doochary. The upper river looked well worth a shot with water in it.

    Reminds me of a little river just above Ullapool called Kinnaird. Any body fished it?. It was stuffed with Salmon when I was last there, just below the falls. What a sight, and it looked not to dissimilar to the pittures you showed us Donnie.
