Inniscarra and Carrigadrohid to re-open for angling 1st June 2018
IFI held an operational meeting with the ESB at Inniscarra 28th May. The ESB are considering IFI’s proposals in relation to long-term biosecurity measures at Carrigadrohid and Inniscarra Reservoirs and accepted IFI’s recommendation to reopen the ESB waters for angling effective 06:00 Friday 1st June 2018. This decision was made on the basis that The Lough and Belvelly will have been closed for 4 weeks since 3rd May and remain closed, therefore greatly minimising the risk of accidental cross-contamination from anglers who may have fished the affected waters prior to 3rd May.
Carp mortalities appear to have ceased at The Lough in Cork, with none reported over the weekend; the total remains at 855. There were 23 reported from Belvelly Lake, over the weekend bringing the total there to 322.
Angling remains suspended at both locations.
IFI urges all anglers to act responsibly in relation to bio security measures. Full information on how to safely clean angling gear and minimise the risk of spreading pathogens and invasive species can be found at:
