Corkagh Park Report

Godfrey Donohue Managing Director reports from the CORKAGH PARK FISHERY near Clondalkin in Dublin. Ph: +353 (0)1 4592622 mob: +353 (0)87 2650495 e-mail: Web:

Keith Dwyer (The Navan Man) is a very regular visitor to the lakes and today he broke his duck - he caught 3 carp to 8lbs. At the moment, simple tactics are working on the lake - a single piece of corn, or two castors, or maggots are some of the best baits this week. Harry Kilpatrick had 9 carp for the week keeping his terminal tackle simple. Barry Mellon had 2 nice doubles to 11 lbs on soft hookable pellets. Sasha Manic caught 5 nice carp (he keeps all his terminal tackle secret but off a bolt-rig!). One young angler had a couple of nice roach to 1.5lbs. Overall the carp lake is very steady with good numbers of carp being caught every day.

The trout lake produced fish up to 14lbs this week. Most fish are being caught on very small flies - size 16 to 20. Midge, parachute mosquito and black gnats are three of the more favoured evening fly. Through the day, the detatched daddy seems to be doing the trick. Some brighter coloured buzzers stripped through the water are also working well. Our evening rise is absolutely fabulous and it is well worth a visit for this reason. There are plenty of trout being caught and the lake is very well stocked. On the evening rise there is a great chance of catching good quality fish.
