Can anybody confirm if this is a better year????not seeing any reports and I wouldn't mind a run up...
I have obtained river bann statistics. This is virtually the poorest season on record and the Bush will be the same.
"PORTNA COUNTER L . Bann as at 12 30 pm lunchtime on Thurs 17 th Aug 2017. Running total now 7,818. Counter figures courtesy Salmon Research Station Bushmills.
Running total at that time last year (2016) , on Frid 19th Aug 2016 was 14,310."
And the most recent figures
"11 30am Thurs 7th Sept 2017. Running totai now 8,111 (includes only 51 salmon since last update on Frid 1st Sept."
So there's 8,111 fish so far to sustain the whole Lough Neagh/upper bann system.....and the honourable Irish society bailiffs are spending their time hiding in bushes, trying to catch an angler using barbed hooks or mercy killing a fish, or otherwise, while widespread poaching continues in the lough.
