Why do they go off the take there on high water
I have heard some people say that the pressure increase when the tide acts against the water flow, hard to say really. I love fishing there (especially the weir pool in very low water) but its a big issue having to loose hours of fishing time on high tide when its so expensive to fish there.

I think the main reason is the lack of flow. I have caught fish at the weir when the tide was still in but being a low tide there was still a little flow from the boxes

Some fishing there. I see a lot broke the club and government guidance in travelling.... I found it tempting to travel but I just hope the water holds until 8pm Friday night :)

It's fluctuating daily per opw guages but should settle before Fridays rain takes effect. Not sure if it will be in order for the fly.
I've been checking the levels and tobercurry forecast every hour this past few days haha. Hopefully I get a few hours on Friday night with good conditions and on Sunday again. I'll be packing spinning gear and worming gear too just incase 😀
